JDK 7 features

Mark Reinhold just published a blog which details the list of features that are currently planned for JDK 7, by the OpenJDK community. The idea is to give a  preview at Java One in June and release in the spring of CY10.

We are hoping for comments and feedback, via the openJDK mailing list. Dalibor is also working out the schedule for the next OpenJDK call, which will be open to all the folks in the community.

The renaissance of Java

The next key iteration of the Java platform & language is currently planned. The stakes, for this highly anticipated release, are high, however Java 7 looks promising. There are several JSRs (203, 294, 291, etc.) in progress and the issue of modularity is also on the docket. A modular Java platform will help address issues of performance (download & startup time, memory footprint), platform scalability (e.g. Java SE scaling to small devices) and packaging (fixing the jar hell issues). These are real customer problems that Java 7 will attempt to address.

The blog to watch for more details is Mark Reinhold's.
