Programming Tips - How can I cope with Java being updated every 6 months

Date: 2019feb8 Language: Java Q. How can I cope with Java being updated every 6 months A. If you don't want to update every 6 months (for nice new features and security fixes) you can still get get just the security fixes by sticking to the Long Term Support (TLS) releases. Which are:
Java 8 (out now) Java 11 (out now) Java 17 (due 2021)
The LTS updates will be from OpenJDK - not Oracle - which is fine.
