Oracle changed the process for signing up for a test in person. (If you want to take an exam online from home, read up in carefully. For example, this blog post. It wasn’t immediately clear to me how to register for in person, so I wrote it down.
The current end of life support dates are interesting. I extracted some dates from the official support table to make it easier to see this.
First of all, extended support for Java 7 is less than a year away. You aren’t still on Java 7, right? 🙂
Second, premiere support for Java 11 ends later than Java 8. However, extended support for Java 8 ends way later. This is interesting. I guess Oracle recognizes it is harder to move off Java 8 than other versions?
