With the recent JCP approval of the Java SE 7 JSR, and participation in OpenJDK by both Apple and IBM, it can be said that Java is going through a renaissance period. Java SE 7 brings a number of valuable new features to the ecosystem and the increased participation and investments are sure to lead to even more innovations and adoption of the Java platform. Join Mark Reinhold, Chief Architect of the Java Platform Group at Oracle and John Duimovich, Java CTO at IBM as they walk you through the recent news of the OpenJDK project and speak about what the future holds not only for Eclipse developers, but the entire Java Ecosystem.
