Java Enterprise Edition is moving to the cloud and its focus will be providing support for Platform as a Service.

Java EE 7  will includes new components to better handle cloud computing tasks such as metadata processing and multi-tenant systems.

"We want to provide a way for customers and users to leverage public, private and hybrid clouds," said Oracle technical staff consulting member Linda DiMichiel. "We see this as an evolutionary change and the next logical step for Java EE."

Although there isn't a release date for it yet, Java EE 7, is well underway with 10 active Java Specification Requests (JSRs) being worked on through the Java Community Process (JCP) by over 20 different participating companies and represented by hundreds of engineers.
