News: Get started with JDK 7 and Netbeans 7.0 Beta 2

  1. Get started with JDK 7 and Netbeans 7.0 Beta 2 (2 messages)

    In order help early adopters explore Java 7 we've put up a series of blog posts starting with installing the latest JDK 7 binary build, followed by installing NetBeans 7.0 (Beta 2). Regular blog posts featuring code samples and the weekly state of Java 7 progress will commence starting from this week. In addition to the blog posts we have started a google group discussing Java 7 topics.

    So if you are interested in trying out the features of Project Coin, e.g:

    • try-with-resource statements
    • Simplified varargs method invocation
    • Multi-catch and more precise rethrow
    • Strings in switch

    Or, perhaps the new Asychronous I/O capabilties that come part of NIO.2, then try out the instructions above and let us know if there are any issues!

    In the interest of transparency:  Ben Evans and myself are writing "The Well-Grounded Java Developer" covering important parts of Java 7 and ployglot programming on the JVM.  The blog does have the occasional book related post, but you can filter those out easily.  The google group is focussed on Java 7 with extremely low volume of traffic about the book

    Great! I can't wait tor try.

  3. Hi all,

    We've discovered a couple of gotchas in our instructions to do with JDK 7 and Debian systems as well as Netbeans and PermGen, please see for details.

    Happy hacking!
