- Also releases SDK to support HTML 5 and further increase developer productivity
- Scalable infrastructure that facilitates building HTML 5 applications by reducing response times
ORACLE Corp and Java Community Process (JCP) members have announced the availability of Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 7 (Java EE 7) and the Java EE 7 Software Development Kit (SDK).
The SDK would support HTML 5 and further increase developer productivity. Oracle said in a statement.
The new Java EE 7 features a scalable infrastructure that facilitates the building of HTML 5 applications by reducing response times through low-latency, bi-directional communication with WebSockets, the company said.
It simplifies data parsing and exchange and at the same time can support many more users concurrently, Oracle claimed.
“Java EE continues to be popular with strong developer adoption. This is a great release with strong technology updates that meets the demands of today’s enterprises,” said Cameron Purdy, vice president of development at Oracle.
Developers interested in getting started with the Java EE 7 release can leverage the NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE) 7.3.1 to support Java EE 7 features including HTML 5 and Eclipse Kepler (4.3).
Java EE 7 New Features training is also available to help developers accelerate the transition and the Java EE 7 SDK offers a hands-on approach to learning the latest Java EE technologies, Oracle said.
