Local-Variable Type Inference Java 10 Example

Java 9 legacy code:

public void java9Legacy() {
    Map<String, String> devs = new HashMap();
    devs.put("duke", "java8");
    for (Map.Entry<String, String> dev : devs.entrySet()) {
        System.out.println(dev.getKey() + " " + dev.getValue());

...can be streamlined with Java 10 and Local-Variable Type Inference (JEP-286):

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;
import org.junit.Test;

public class VariableTypeInferenceTest {

    public void inferTypeWithJava10() {
        var modernDevs = new HashMap<String, String>();
        modernDevs.put("duke", "java10");
        for (var dev : modernDevs.entrySet()) {
            System.out.println(dev.getKey() + " " + dev.getValue());

The code above runs on openJDK 10 GA JDK 10, was edited with Apache Netbeans 9 and built with Maven 3.5.0


See you at Java EE Workshops at Munich Airport, Terminal 2 or Virtual Dedicated Workshops / consulting. Is Munich's airport too far? Learn from home: airhacks.io.


What is Apache Netbeans and how it relared to old Netbeans? What is reason of migration?

"Java 9 legacy code" ... I feel so old now :-)

It's quite interesting to see Java gaining pace!
