To Java 22 and Beyond!

Track: Core Java
Java 21 has come and gone, and the Java release train continues with Java 22!

Still, we will look over the key changes that have come to Java in recent releases, briefly discuss what has changed from 11-17, and take time to focus on changes in 17+.

Many key changes have come to Java in recent releases; virtual threads, pattern matching, records, Generational ZGC, and more, understanding the goals of these changes can be key to understanding where Java is now and where it is going in the future!
