Java 16 and IntelliJ IDEA
If you are still working with Java 8, you might have mixed feelings about the news of the release of Java 16. However, you’ll see these numbers are going to increment at a much faster and predictable rate with Java’s six-month release cadence.
I’m personally excited about Java 16! It adds Records and Pattern Matching for instanceof as standard language features with Sealed classes continuing to be a preview feature (in the second preview).
Fun fact – Records was voted the most popular Java 16 language feature by 1158 developers in this Twitter poll, with Pattern Matching for instanceof second.
In this blog post, I will limit coverage of Java 16 to its language features, why you need them, and how you can start using them in IntelliJ IDEA. You can use this link for a comprehensive list of the new Java 16 features. Let’s get started.

The Java language has been evolving at a fast pace with a six month release cadence and preview features.
With faster Java releases, it’s an exciting time to be a Java developer. Every new release of Java promises interesting features and updates.
To give them a spin, you have the tooling support in Eclipse Java IDE ready at your disposal.
