Java Language

New JDK 14 and 15-Specific Java Language Features

  • Code coloring. Keywords "sealed", "non-sealed", and "permits" are highlighted conforming to the existing styles of all other Java keywords.

  • Code formatting for "sealed" type. Extended the Java code formatting feature to include "sealed" and "permits" clauses for the first time.

  • Auto-completion for "sealed" type. Added keyword "sealed" and "non-sealed" before "class" declaration. Added "permits" only in the allowed location, i.e., the "permits" clause is not allowed to be put before "extends" and "implements" clause, if present.

  • Fixed Record Formatting issue with use of annotation:

  • Fixed issue: refactor record rename & move record file to other package: 

  • Invoke code completion for "Record" variable name and the editor will analyze the context and then suggest choices that are reachable from the current caret position.

  • Fixed JavaDoc listing for class-type RECORD on auto completion:

  • nb-javac fork supports JDK 15:
