TOTD #156: JDK 7 Developer Preview Now Available!

JDK 7 developer preview build is now available.
java -version
java version "1.7.0-ea"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-ea-b130)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 21.0-b02, mixed mode, sharing)

This is milestone 12 (all milestones), build #130 and has 456 bugs fixed since feature complete about a month ago. Download it today and try your applications and provide us feedback via forums and/or file a bug/rfe.

For sanity, I could easily download/install it on Windows 7, run NetBeans 7.0 Beta 2 and GlassFish 3.1 b41, create a simple Java EE 6 Web application and run it on GlassFish. And also encountered bug 195254 which is totally unrelated to JDK7 though ;-)

And if you are interested, screencast #35 showed how to use Project Coin features in NetBeans 7. The video is available below again for your reference:

Today NetBeans has the most comprehensive support for JDK 7 but its also coming in IntelliJ 10.5 and Eclipse.

JDK 7 will be released on the supported set of platforms (Windows, Solaris SPARC, Solaris x86, and Linux) first and then will be released on OSX later. You can also find some more details on community-led JDK 7 builds on Mac OSX.
