What is coming up in JDK 7 ?

October 20th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

JDK 7 which is scheduled to be release in 2011, has some new features which should make programming fun. One of them is dynamically typed language . The JSR 292 new method invocation mode : invokedynamic. With that new bytecode keyword, we can call method only known at runtime.

A new package java.dyn that will use this new functionality. That package will improve the performances of Java reflection and mainly the performances of the others languages that run in the JVM.

Then there is a new class java.util.Objects. This class contains 9 static methods to work on Objects.

See the complete list of JDK 7 features
