Many people might think this a simple question; I am not one of them. I feel that in the modern world of development, there are too many factors to pick a single tool for debugging any language, let alone Java.
Let’s take a step back and look at where we started with debugging, and while I am not going to get into the history of debugging, we should look at some of the basic tools used for debugging Java, aside from logging and system-out.
Let’s start with a quick look at the Java debugger (Java Discovery Protocol - JDP), which is a command-line tool used for debugging Java applications. This tool ships directly from Oracle, so you can be sure it will work; however, it can be complex to use and require knowledge of where you want to debug ahead of time.
A positive aspect of this tool is the fact that you can use it on the same box where the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is running. This set-up means you do not need to deal with the complexities of connecting any external service that might be restricted by firewalls, which is particularly useful if you are deploying your Java applications into Docker containers. (which let’s be honest, who isn’t).
And while a command-line tool is not the best option for everyday work, what other options are available?
OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.
In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

According to some surveys, such as JetBrains’s great survey, Java 8 is currently the most used version of Java, despite being a 2014 release.
What you are reading is one in a series of articles titled ‘Going beyond Java 8,’ inspired by the contents of my book, Java for Aliens. These articles will guide you step-by-step through the most important features introduced to the language, starting from version 9. The aim is to make you aware of how important it is to move forward from Java 8, explaining the enormous advantages that the latest versions of the language offer.
In this article, we will talk about the most important new feature introduced with Java 10. Officially called local variable type inference, this feature is better known as the **introduction of the word **
var. Despite the complicated name, it is actually quite a simple feature to use. However, some observations need to be made before we can see the impact that the introduction of the word
var has on other pre-existing characteristics.

Students who start to learn Java and other programming languages often wonder if there are any tips and tricks that will quicken the learning process. I am not sure about tricks in terms of studying, but there are a few handy tips to make the process as quick as it is realistically possible.
Based on my experience in tutoring and software development, I’ve put together the seven most applicable and proven recommendations for learning Java quickly. So, stay tuned to find out what they are.

On March 16th, 2021, Java 16 was GA. With this new release, tons of new exciting features have been added. Check out the release notes to know more about these changes in detail. This article’s focus will be on Java Records, which got delivered with JEP 395. Records were first introduced in JDK 14 as a preview feature proposed by JEP 359, and with JDK 15, they remained in preview with JEP 384. However, with JDK 16, Records are no longer in preview.
I have picked Records because they are definitely the most favored feature added in Java 16, according to this Twitter poll by Java Champion Mala Gupta.
I also conducted a similar survey, but it was focused on features from Java 8 onwards. The results were not unexpected, as Java 8 is still widely used. Very unfortunate, though, as tons of new features and improvements are added to newer Java versions. But in terms of features, Java 8 was definitely a game-changer from a developer perspective.
So let’s discuss what the fuss is about Java Records.
