- [Frank] When Java announced its updated released training guidelines, it became vividly clear to most Java developers that there were two distinct strategies.

With that said, Java 14 brings some welcome features to the platform that will help you improve the cleanliness of your code and enhance the developer experience for both writing code, through more pleasing syntax, and debugging code with more robust messages. In addition, there are some welcome additions to memory management and garbage collection as well. And to top it off, a new packaging system that may help developers do even more with the language.
