Here's another article (this time from TechCentral) giving the roadmap of what's intended to be done with Java technology moving forward toward Java SE 8, 9, 10 and beyond.
Here's a quote:
Under the subheading, "Works Everywhere and With Everything," Oracle lists goals like scaling down to embedded systems and up to massive servers, as well as support for heterogeneous compute models.If our group is going to get Java working "Everywhere and With Everything", we'd better get crackin'! We have to especially make more room in our lab, if we need to fit "Everything" in there to test... "Everything" takes up a lot of room!
