A few months ago, I had a chance to sit down with Danny Coward, the Chief Architect for Client Software at Sun Microsystems, to examine some of the new and cool features in the next release of the Java Development Kit, JDK 7. Some of these features focus on modularizing the JDK, supporting non-Java languages at the VM level, and making developers more productive through various small changes to the Java languages. Danny backed up this discussion with some code examples and demonstrations. It was an educational and enjoyable session. I hope you agree.
Note that the content of this session reflects the state of the project at the time the Deep Dive was taped. Please check the JDK 7 Features project site for the latest information about JDK 7.
