Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
UPDATE – In order to provide clients a choice on which Java version they would like training on, we are releasing new course codes for Java 8. Our current course codes will stay at Java 7 for those that need that version.
At Web Age Solutions it is important for us to make sure we are offering training that is relevant and appropriate for you. Even though Java SE 8 was released some time ago, clients have taken a while to start using it since most Java environments they ran applications in had not yet added Java 8 support. With the latest versions of all major Java EE application servers offering some type of Java 8 support that dynamic has changed.
We are updating our primary Java training courses to add Java 8 coverage. The primary courses being updated are:
The following courses will remain available using Java SE 7 for clients that need this version.
Since we know that there are also lots of Java programmers that do not need to take a “standard” course but simply need to learn what the changes are with this new version, we are also releasing a new course that covers the most recent changes. This course covers the major changes of Java 8 that will have a significant impact on a wide range of Java applications in addition to a few important Java 7 features that are well known.
So what is new in Java 8? Will it impact your applications? Java 8 is one of the most significant updates to Java in some time. After Oracle bought out Sun, Java 6 was around for quite a while. Oracle decided to release the "easy stuff" in Java 7 while working on some of the more significant changes for Java 8.
While the following is not an exhaustive list of Java 8 changes (you can go here for that) the following are some of the major features that are likely to impact a large cross-section of Java applications.
As I mentioned this is nowhere near absolutely all of the new changes in Java 8 but certainly most of the most significant.
Besides the above courses that are being updated and released, we will also soon have a webinar that covers some of these changes as well. Keep an eye on our webinar page for when that is scheduled.
