Hey guys! How’s it going?
I’m migrating a JavaFX chat client from #Java8 to #Java16 before your own eyes to demonstrate that problems are no reason to give up!
Join me while I am migrating a real-world application, a chat client written using JDK 8 (including JavaFX and JAXB) to JDK 16. Learn which problems could pop up, where to find help and solve them within much less than one hour! Neither replacing the originally embedded #JavaFX 8 by standalone #OpenJFX 16 / the original embedded #JAXB 8 by standalone Eclipse #JAXB-RI, nor using the #MavenShadePlugin didn’t stop me! After just few minutes, the project is migrated and works better than ever before AND we could use modern Java APIs and key words now if we would like to!
So there is excuse: Migrate to #JDK16 NOW!
Stay safe and… Party on!
