Date 2014/3/26 1:33:24 | Topic: Product News

As part of the most significant Java technology release by Oracle, the company will host the Java 8 launch webcast today. Oracle is announcing Java Platform, Standard Edition 8 (Java SE 8), Java Platform, Micro Edition 8 (Java ME 8) and the related releases of Oracle's Java Embedded products. Members of the Oracle Java development team, as well as other industry leaders, will highlight the key features of these new products during the webcast. In addition, over 30 technical videos covering Java SE 8, Java ME 8, Java Embedded and the Internet of Things will also be available on demand.
Oracle today announced the availability of JDK 8, a production-ready implementation of the Java SE 8 Platform Specification, which was recently approved through the Java Community Process (JCP). This release includes the largest upgrade to the Java programming model since the platform was introduced in 1996. JDK 8 was developed collaboratively in the OpenJDK Community.
   
Oracle is also announcing Oracle Java SE Embedded 8, which leverages the new Java SE 8 features and is optimized for mid to high end embedded systems. Oracle JDK 8 and Oracle Java SE Embedded 8 are now available to download.  Java SE 8 and Java ME 8 are on a strong convergence path, with Java ME 8 scheduled for availability later this spring. With a consistent Java 8 platform across embedded devices, desktops, data centers and the cloud, customers can deploy applications faster, process and analyze in-flight data and act on events as quickly as they occur. Leveraging Java's cross-platform benefits, the Oracle Java Embedded implementations are designed to increase hardware flexibility and platform choice, allow easier application portability and help extend product lifecycles.
