With thousands of developers watching, Java EE had attended its kick off party on June 12th. Oracle technical leaders and Java users from both large and small enterprises presented the power and capabilities of Java EE 7. If you missed it, do not worry, you can always view the webcast replay, including deep dives into the JSRs. Java EE 7 makes it easier to code, support HTML 5, and meet the most demanding enterprise requirements. The Java EE 7 SDK is ready to download today.
Maintaining the Security-worthiness of Java is Oracle’s Priority: Oracle has done much work to address security issues in the Java language and platform. For example, Oracle is taking steps to address the security implications of the wide distribution model by further dissociating client/browser (home users) and server use (enterprise deployments). Also, starting in October 2013, Java security fixes will be released under the Oracle Critical Patch Update (CPU) schedule, along with all other Oracle products. Please read Nandini Ramani's blog for details.
Feedback Wanted: Java SE 8 The latest preview update of JDK 8, the next generation of the Java Development Kit, has much new Java SE 8 functionality, including lambdas. Please download it, test it and share your feedback.
JavaFX Maven Plugin and Scenic View: The JavaFX Maven Plugin provides a way to assemble distribution bundles for JavaFX applications from within Maven. It just hit 2.0 Alpha and could use your feedback.
