Reply to post: Web development still Java 8

Java 17 arrives with long-term support: What's new, and is it falling behind Kotlin?

Thumb Down

Web development still Java 8

Until web servers such as Glassfish or Tomcat that can run newer versions of Java all my code will be Java 8 compatible for reuse purposes.

Maybe there are alternative web servers or work arounds? Am I missing something?

With that said I've also reviewed changes from Java 8 to 16 and see no real killer feature, and I'm not impressed by syntactic sugar or lazy shortcuts that reduce readability of the code.
