With the new release cadence putting innovations faster into hands of developers, it's possible to use the new features in your code without having to wait several years for them to land in an LTS release. We'll discuss how to organize your code and development processes to make adoption of new JDK releases simpler, as well as the tooling available in the Java ecosystem to assist with that task. Specifically, we'll cover using jdeprscan, jdeps and similar tools on your code, javac cross compilation, using multi-release JAR files, doccheck and doclint, AOT, CDS. setting up projects to build with the latest JDK while running tests with earlier versions, getting and using OpenJDK EA builds and similar practical advice.
