The Java SE 7 release is the result of nearly five years of industry-wide development involving open review, weekly builds and extensive collaboration between Oracle engineers and members of the worldwide Java community via the OpenJDK project. Over the past year the OpenJDK community has continued to grow, including the addition of major vendors such as IBM and Apple. In June Oracle announced that the Java SE 7 Reference Implementation will be based entirely on the OpenJDK open source code.
The Java SE 7 release includes new features such as small language changes for improved developer productivity, a new Filesystem API, support for asynchronous I/O, a new fork/join framework for multicore performance, improved support for dynamic and script languages, updates to security, internationalization and web standards and much more.
In this session, we'll provide an overview of the these new features and highlight the major improvements.

This talk will cover architecting and implementing an Enterprise Mobile App. The development will be done using OpenMobster, an open source platform for mobilizing cloud services. It will involve writing a Sync App. It will cover how to write the Cloud side channels to expose the Enterprise backend. Then on the device side this data will be available for access in offline mode. As the data changes on one device, the Sync Engine will automatically push it to the Cloud and other devices using that piece of data.
You will also learn how to use the cross platform Java API for performing Push. Push is the mechanism used by the Cloud to notify the device of some change that may have occurred on the Cloud. The Java API abstracts the low-level details of Push associated with iPhone and Android.
