License To Code - Java EE 7 Is Released
Written by Alex Armstrong

Java EE 7 is being "launched" with a video "Licensed To Code". Get it - EE7 and 007?  Or is Oracle letting slip that it really would like us to need a license to code?

 

Oracle hasn't got a good track record of making funny videos in an effort to make it look good and get some viral publicity. - who can remember the Kar-Rek videos without embarrassment.  

Now Oracle is trying again to rescue the image of Java and its status as a creator of videos worth seeing. It offers a spoof on James Bond to make Java EE 7 seem cool:

 

It doesn't work for me, but I agree it isn't anywhere near as bad as Kar-Rek. 

We also have to hope that Oracle isn't trying to send us a subliminal message that it hopes to ensure that we all need a license to code in Java in the near future. 

The news is that the video is trying to promote is that EE 7 is now available. We had news a few weeks ago that EE 7 was ready to go and now Oracle has released it and all documentation and tools. The GlassFish app server was released a few day ago and NetBeans has been upgraded to 7.3.1 to support EE 7. Eclipse Kepler will also support EE 7 when it is released later this month. 

The key new technologies in EE 7 are:

  • Concurrency Utilities for Java EE 1.0 (JSR 236)
  • Batch Applications for the Java Platform 1.0 (JSR 352)
  • Java API for WebSocket 1.0 (JSR 356)
  • Java API for JSON Processing 1.0 (JSR 353)
