REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/13 -- Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)

News Facts

  • Oracle and the Java Community Process (JCP) members today announced the availability of Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 7 (Java EE 7) and the Java EE 7 Software Development Kit (SDK).
  • Please join the Java EE 7 launch webcast today, June 12, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. PDT/12:00 p.m. EDT here.
  • The standard in community-driven enterprise software, Java EE 7 is the result of industry-wide development involving open review, ongoing builds and extensive collaboration between hundreds of engineers from more than 30 companies within the Java Community Process (JCP) and the GlassFish Community.
  • Java EE 7 features a scalable infrastructure that facilitates building HTML5 applications by reducing response times through low-latency, bi-directional communication with WebSockets; simplifying data parsing and exchange using industry-standard JSON processing and supporting many more concurrent users through asynchronous RESTful Web Services with JAX-RS 2.0.
  • To help further increase developer productivity, Java EE 7 provides a simplified application architecture with a cohesive, integrated platform; reduces boiler-plate code using dependency injection and default resources; broadens the use of annotations to increase efficiency; and enhances application portability with standard RESTful Web Services client support.
  • Java EE 7 delivers new features that meet the most demanding enterprise requirements, such as breaking down batch jobs into manageable chunks for uninterrupted OLTP performance; defining multithreaded concurrent tasks easily for improved scalability; improving Managed Beans alignment (including transactional interceptors) and delivering transactional applications with choice and flexibility.
  • Updates to Java Message Service (JMS) 2.0 are designed to improve usability through annotations and Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI) Beans support; and significantly reduce the code required to send and receive messages.
  • A complete list of all the new features and capabilities of Java EE 7 is available here.
  • The Java EE 7 SDK offers a hands-on approach to learning the latest Java EE technologies. It includes tutorials, sample code and API documentation.
  • 19 Java user groups around the world have taken part in the "Adopt a JSR" program, providing valuable feedback and code samples to validate Java Specification Request (JSR) APIs.
  • Developers interested in getting started immediately with the Java EE 7 release can leverage the NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE) 7.3.1, which supports Java EE 7 features, including HTML 5 and Eclipse Kepler (4.3), which has early builds supporting Java EE 7 available today.
  • Java EE 7 New Features training is also available from Oracle to help developers accelerate the transition to Java EE 7 and implement the latest platform enhancements.
