Java Development Kit 7 (1.7)

Vendor: Sun Microsystems, Inc.


Java SE is designed to enable you to develop secure, portable, high-performance applications for the widest range of computing platforms possible. By making applications available across heterogeneous environments, businesses can boost end-user productivity, communication, and collaboration - and dramatically reduce the cost of ownership of both enterprise and consumer applications.

With the release of JDK 7, the Java Language continues to evolve. New language features make it possible to write tighter, more robust code. Functionality that was previously difficult to implement is now made easier. Most of the Java Language Enhancements introduced in JDK 7 were a result of JSR 334, supported by OpenJDK Project Coin.
