A half year back a new era started with the release of Java 10. It was exceptionally astonishing and adored by numerous Pro developers. However, now we even ventured further with the arrival of new Java 11. This release also makes it first LTS release in prophet’s half-year cycle which is really astonishing.
For the initial 20 years, the Java platform and the Java Development Kit (JDK) advanced in extensive, sporadic, and to some degree unusual advances.
Each component release was driven by at least one noteworthy highlight. So, the schedule of each release was deferred on numerous occasions to oblige the fulfillment of those highlights.
Java 11 conveys Oracle’s last objective of the new release plan, which is to give dependability to arrangements of Java applications, with unwavering quality and long-haul accessibility being esteemed over new highlights.
Returning to the significant highlights and changes in Java 11, there are various increments, including the new standard HTTP library that brings bolster for HTTP/2 and permits stream-based HTTP/1.
Features of Java 11: –
Local-Variable Syntax for Lambda Parameters
This JEP will enable var to be utilized while declaring the formal parameters of verifiably composed lambda expressions.
The objective here is to adjust the linguistic syntax of a neighborhood variable presentation with the syntax of a formal parameter declaration in a verifiably composed lambda expression.
An Arbitrarily Low-Overhead Garbage Collector
In Java 11, the official name of this JEP is “A No-Op Garbage Collector”, and its motivation is to build up a garbage collector that handles memory allocation, without executing any actual memory recovery component.
It would also be helpful for to a great degree brief employment, last-drop inactivity enhancements, or last-drop throughput upgrades.
Dynamic Class-File Constants
The Java class-record arrangement will be reached out to help another consistent pool shape, CONSTANT Dynamic. This will diminish the expense and disturbance of making new types of materializable class-record constants.
As of now, connecting an invoke dynamic call site delegates linkage to a bootstrap strategy. It is a JVM guidance that enables the compiler to produce code, which calls techniques with a looser detail than was already conceivable.
It gives the capacity to make a dynamic consider that the JVM perceives as well as improves similarly it streamlines plain old static-composed calls.

Remove the Java EE and CORBA Modules
intends to expel Java EE and CORBA modules from the Java SE stage and the JDK. Actually, these modules were at that point belittled in Java 9 with the pronounced goal to expel them in a future discharge.
The new release also evacuates some more seasoned highlights to endeavor to streamline the center Java item:
- Java EE and CORBA Modules: Require applications to expressly rely on EE and CORBA modules in the event that they require them.
- Web Start: This element has been evacuated with no unmistakable substitution.
- Applets: These have been intensely censured for quite a while and are at long last expelled.
- JavaFX: The FX libraries have moved to the OpenJFX venture and are expelled from the center.
I mostly like to look forward to anticipating what’s coming soon to a JDK close me since I think that it’s fascinating to think about. In any case, there are also reasonably favorable circumstances now and again to comprehending what’s coming. For instance, JEP 320 gives insights with respect to options in contrast to the modules and apparatuses that will be expelled in Java 11.
