Enterprise Java With Spring Boot

Even before front-end and AWS technology, there was Java, and with Java came Spring. Today’s Spring is powered by Spring Boot, and Chariot has leveraged it effectively across a myriad of technologies, deploying on servers, the cloud and other spaces. We can get your teams up to speed with Spring Boot, help integrate it with your front-end React applications, use it as a backend-for-frontend for RESTful integration with other techs, and more.

Modern Java Training

A three-day course updating developers on modern features of Java. The course assumes knowledge of imperative (not functional) Java development techniques, Java annotations, and other base language features. It steps through innovations in Java language, SDK and functional programming features from 8.x to present day (currently JDK 20). Plenty of code samples will be shared along the way.

Java until version 7.0 (baseline)
Core shifts from Version 8.0: functional programming, etc.
The Java Community Process, projects, JEPs
Major changes from Java 8 to Java 20

Language Enhancements
var, pattern matching, switch expressions, multi-line strings, effectively final variables, sealed classes and interfaces, default methods and static interface methods, records.

SDK Features
java.time API, the Http Client, Request and Response, String formatting, simple web server, File read/write with String, List conversions, etc.

Functional Programming with Lambdas Optional, HttpClient async mode with CompletableFuture, method references, @FunctionalInterface annotation, Predicates, BiFunctions, filtering, and(), or() and not(), Lambdas as function expressions, example Lambdas, variable capture.

Streaming APIs
What is a stream? creating streams from collections, random sequences, filter, map, reduce, grouping, using Suppliers to generate data, why not Lambdas?

JDK and Tooling
Oracle’s newer Java licensing rules and OpenJDK alternatives, the SDKMAN utility, JShell, JDK Mission Control, Flight Recorder, JCMD, GraalVM, an overview of Garbage Collection algorithms.

Tools Used
IntelliJ community edition
OpenJDK 20
JDK Mission Control

This course can be tailored to focus on a given set of features. Please contact us for more details.
