I see some practice tests asking to tell if so-and-so method was newly introduced in Java SE8. Do I need to remember all the methods/features that were introduced in Java SE8? Should I expect such kind of questions in real exam?
For example,
Is split() method newly added in String class in Java SE8?

TIA!

No. Sometimes we include the version in the book out of interest. We don't test whether you know the version of the feature, nor does the real exam.

In the past, there was an exception that. You used to have to know the version where "assert" became a keyworld. But that was a long time ago so they don't ask it anymore.
