Abstract: The tutorial gives an overview of language extensions, additions to the core Java libraries, and relevant changes in the JVM that were released with Java 7. Among the new features are automatic resource management (ARM), improved exception handling ("multi-catch"), closures (Project Lambda), concurrency updates (Fork- Join / Parallel Arrays), type annotations for defect prevention (JSR 308), a revised file API (NIO2), modularity support (Project Jigsaw), and a new garbage collector ("G1"). Some of the features have been controversally debated in the Java community for years. The tutorial will explain what the ado is about.
Note: Since Java 7 has not yet been released (release is scheduled for September 2010) and due to the fact that Oracle tends to operate behind closed doors it is still unknown what exactly will be part of Java 7. Accordingly the above abstract might be subject to change.
