Upgrade to Java 16 or 17 by Johan Janssen, Software Architect @SanomaLearning

Java upgrades are sometimes seen as difficult and many applications are still running on an older version of Java. This session describes the current six months release process of Java and why applications should use a recent Java version. After that, I'll explain the challenges of upgrading and provide some useful tips to make the process easier. Concrete examples will be used to show you how to upgrade your application to Java 16 or 17.
