Oracle and the Java Community Process (JCP) members today announced the availability of Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 7 (Java EE 7) and the Java EE 7 Software Development Kit (SDK). You can join the WebSockets; simplifying data parsing and exchange using industry-standard JSON processing and supporting many more concurrent users through asynchronous RESTful Web Services with JAX-RS 2.0.
A simplified application architecture with a cohesive, integrated platform; reduces boiler-plate code using dependency injection and default resources; broadens the use of annotations to increase efficiency; and enhances application portability with standard RESTful Web Services client support.
New features that meet the most demanding enterprise requirements, such as breaking down batch jobs into manageable chunks for uninterrupted OLTP performance; defining multithreaded concurrent tasks easily for improved scalability; improving Managed Beans alignment (including transactional interceptors) and delivering transactional applications with choice and flexibility.
Updates to Java Message Service (JMS) 2.0 improve usability through annotations and Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI) Beans support; significantly reduce the code required to send and receive messages.
Hands-on a tutorials, sample code and API documentation are part of the Java EE 7 SDK.
A complete list of all the new features and capabilities of Java EE 7 is available here.
The standard in community-driven enterprise software, Java EE 7 is the result of industry-wide development involving open review, ongoing builds and extensive collaboration between hundreds of engineers from more than 30 companies within the Java Community Process (JCP). Java user groups around the world have taken part in the “Adopt a JSR” program, providing valuable feedback and code samples to validate Java Specification Request (JSR) APIs.
Java EE 7 makes it easier to code, support HTML 5, and meet the most demanding enterprise requirements. The Java EE 7 SDK is ready to download today.
