Java 7 is here…..it’s about time

Finally after a long time Java 7 is finally here. It has many features.

The most interesting features in my opinion are:

  • NIO 2, which is a real revolting to Java IO
  • Syntax extensions: Automatic resource cleanup(instead of close in finally), String in switch, binary literals, literals separator and shorter generic write
  • new Garbage Collector as default

You can download it from oracles download site for developer:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

The default user download site java.com still points to Java 6.
