Ques 4. What is Restore or Rebuild the "Always-Strict Floating-Point" Semantics in Java 17?

This JEP makes floating-point operations uniformly stringent and is primarily intended for scientific applications. Both default floating-point operations, strict or strictfp, provide the same outcomes for calculations using floating-point on every platform.

Ques 5. What is enhanced Pseudo-Random Number Generators in Java 17?

It offers a new interface type and solutions for pseudo-random number generators to make using multiple PRNG (Pseudo-Random Number Generators) algorithms simpler and properly support stream-based operations.

Example: RandomGeneratorFactory

public IntStream getPseudoVals(String algorithm, int streamSize) {    
    // returns an IntStream with size @streamSize of random numbers generated using the below @algorithm    
    // where the lower bound is 0 and the upper is 100 (exclusive)    
    return RandomGeneratorFactory.of(algorithm).create().ints(streamSize, 0,100);
