JDK 7 watch: Milestone 3
By dannycoward on Apr 21, 2009
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.
