  • Java 7 Small Language Changes Screencast

    This screencast demonstrates the small language changes that are part of Open JDK 7, which is available from the Open JDK website. It demonstrates multi-catch, try with resources, strings in switch statements, underscores in literals, and the diamond operator.

    If you have any issues watching the video below, then you may have better luck viewing it on the JetBrains.tv site.

    I’ve made a lot of screencasts and blog posts over the years. If you like this, then there are many ways to see the other stuff I’ve done: 

    The screencast was created with Ubuntu 10.04, PiTiVi, Audicity, gtk-RecordMyDesktop, IntelliJ IDEA, and LibreOffice. OS from top to bottom.

    Thanks for watching, and leave a comment!

      The best part of Ateji PX is that it is designed as an extension of Java & is available in the form of integrated elements within Eclipse.

      Thanks for the screencast. You did leave out one fairly significant exception handling related change – Rethrow with more inclusive type checking. See http://download.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/language/catch-multiple.html

      D’oh! I did forget about more precise rethrows. Darn it. Thanks for the link, I hope people see the comment!
