Final cleanup


The purpose of this document is to help in preparation for Upgrade OCP Java 6, 7 & 8 to Java SE 11 Developer Test (Exam 1Z0-817).

This document should not be used as the only study material for Upgrade OCP Java 6, 7 & 8 to Java SE 11 Developer Test (Exam 1Z0-817). It might cover not all objective topics, and it might be not enough. I tried to make this document as much accurate as possible, but if you find any error, please let me know.
