[3.] Java SE and Java for Business Support RoadMap
Normal Java SE releases are updated with bug-fixes for a period of at least 3-yrs.
Java for Business releases will be supported for upto 8-yrs.
Oracle also provides option of Lifetime Support to corporates with Java for Business reaching their license’s End-Of-Life; covering your entire technology stack from database to middleware to applications.

>>>>>It feels like: Microsoft version of Java Services.
I don’t know why initial news of IBM trying to buy Sun Microsystems make me worried
I’d have setup a Save-OpenSource-Community-Fund to aid IBM if knew about Oracle’s plans of buying.
Looking at Oracle’s actions, give me a feel-good notion for Microsoft‘s current stage.

Project Lambda, an element of Java SE 8 providing closures and related language features for Java, as well as upgrades to Core Java libraries to more easily express parallel calculations on collections.
JSR292 – InvokeDynamics would work in making JVM more deeply interactive with other language compilers running over JVM like JRuby, Jython, etc

>>>>>It feels like: if Sun had the same shine as before instead of the new O-Factor, I’d have wanted it sooner… but now, let it come when it has to…
