4JDK 8 Road Map
6Like a Bridge Over Java
Oracle has set a strategy to bridge Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) and Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME) platforms, with synchronized releases and Java ME APIs to run on Java SE. This move is for full coverage of embedded vertical markets. The Java Platform will cover all CPU/footprint variants. There will be dedicated APIs for vertical market segments.
Oracle announced Oracle Public Cloud, with a proposed Java platform as a service (PAAS) offering. The Oracle Java Cloud Service is an enterprise platform for developing, deploying and managing business-critical Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) applications based on Oracle WebLogic Server. It supports development and deployment from multiple Java Integrated Development Environments (IDEs), including Oracle JDeveloper, NetBeans and Eclipse.
8Java EE 7
Oracle officials say Java Platform Enterprise Edition 7 (Java EE 7) is in the works. The proposed Java EE 7 shows Oracle prepping Java EE for the cloud with service definitions and service provisioning to enable Java as PAAS. It also will enable multi-tenancy in APIs. Java EE 7 is well underway with 10 active Java Specification Requests (JSRs) being worked on through the JCP by more than 20 participating companies and represented by hundreds of engineers.
