Tori Wieldt Talks with Mark Reinhold in the Tent

Tori Wieldt interviewed Mark Reinhold (Chief Architect of the Java 7 Platform) this afternoon, in a talk that was streamed on Oracle Technology Network Live. Mark reiterated that "Plan B" is the Java 7 plan going forward -- a reduced Java 7 feature set, but an earlier Java 7 release. The features that are close to complete will be included in Java 7, which will be released mid-2011. Remaining features will be in Java 8. Mark said Java 7 will include: most of Project Coin, including try-with constructs and the diamond operator (which facilitates getting more done with less code) InvokeDynamic, which will facilitate integration with scripting languages like Ruby lots of smaller items Java 8 will include the items not included Java 7, for example: Project Lambda (closures and other enhancements related to development for multi-core processors) Project Jigsaw (modularity) the remaining Project Coin features additional smaller items Mark invites our assistance with bringing out a solid Java 7.
