Installed JDK 14 and now everything has scattered. Cannot build, run or compile because of a plethora of config that must be updated. Literally want to die. Naturally, i would update my java home path to my old version in my bash_profile right? well tough shit. that didn't work either. Really fucking frustrated rn. Its like Java and sbt on my machine are at war.

    then don't install java ;) you don't need to install java after all. Just download and extract it. Create an alias for it, like java14, and only update your IDE or whatever you needed that j14 for.

    I dont use jde. i usually run java in my console so i install it globally. that was mistake 1. turns out when i update my java_home path, it was updating only in the current session and when i restart my terminal, console defaults to broken jdk 14. Solved it tho. Turns out my .bash_profile was not updating with the desired jdk version. went and manually added the path and voila, i am back on track. Java always disappoints me it's really embarrassing to keep stan-ing it.

    Turns out my dumbass didn't realise i was running scala 2.12.3 and jdk 14 requires a minimum of 2.12.11. fm

    I have not seen any language proving itself as a wrong choice than java these days.

    He means he couldn't understand what you wrote. The more disgestible version would be:

    "Any language would be better than java these days."

    Maybe use the Canadian method and post the message in French and English for a little while for context?

    What I meant is that due the amount of breaking changes that continues to grow while the language "evolves" , makes it quite obvious that it is not the right choice, at least for nowadays.

    So, normally you invest in some language, you get to know its strong and weak points . Then after some years, you start migrating to a new one or upgrade to a newer versions.

    With java you do not need to wait that long to make a decision as to whether to migrate or not . Oracle with its bumpy roadmap for Java is already helping you.
