JDK 7 watch: Milestone 3


Even as The Planetarium was hearing all about its new landlord, it was good to see JDK 7 showing steady progress towards its milestones. The next one, M3, is going to be the JDK7 Preview release for JavaOne. With the inclusion of SDP, and early sightings of SCTP, and ongoing work forward-porting Java SE 6u10 features into the JDK7 codebase, the next big thing to look out for this milestone will be the integration of JSR 292.

In related news, there's a new combined JDK/JavaFX SDK download bundle for those of you who like it all in one. You might want to keep tabs on this blog, which is fairly consistently blogging code showing how to use the new features going into JDK 7, like how to use Paths instead of Files with NIO2, and a nice deployment toolkit 101 for those of you deploying applets of some flavor. And Dr Dobbs pulse appeared to race about the seductive qualities of the new concurrency work for jdk7, with hopes that it will help prolong the success of Java in the technology jungle.

The silence from many Sun blogs in the last couple days was ennervating. It's good to start hearing from you again - and "Business As Usual" is the music that everybody who loves Java and other Sun tech wants to listen.

It's good to have some pointed directions about new features in JDK 7, especially from a top-qualified professional like you. Thanks!

I must have missed the memo, but why is it "JDK 7", not "Java 7"?

Shouldn't that be Oracle JDK 7.0.0.1a or something? :)

By dividing the living rooms into equal squares, it turns out that for most games, many of the squares contain unused toys that can be safely put away.http://www.watchgy.com/
