Java SE 7 Is Here!

Java SE 7 is officially released today! After nearly five years of collaboration within the worldwide Java community, Java Platform, Standard Edition is ready for download! It's an important step in Java’s evolution. Thanks to everyone who suggested features, reviewed specs, argued on mailing lists, talked about Java 7 at your JUG meeting, submitted bugs, wrote blogs and tweeted about #java7. The major features of Java SE 7 are:


    •    Project Coin- many small language changes that add up to a big boost in productivity for developers
    •    The Fork/Join Framework -  facilitates parallelism for multi-core processors
    •    The New File System API (NIO.2) - provides the ability to perform many basic file system operations natively
    •    InvokeDynamic - makes it easier to run other languages on the JVM


To learn more about these features, you can view the technical presentations from Oracle's global event on July 7. In addition, hundreds of Java User Groups (JUGs) worldwide are celebrating the release of Java 7 by hosting member events from July through September. Find one near you!

So is it true that Oracle JDK/JRE 7 is not supported on Guest OSs if those Guest OSs are run under Oracle VM 2.X, VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V ?
