The JDK7 Developer Preview Release (aka Milestone 12, aka Build b130) is now available. Java SE 7 will bring some important additions, such as JDBC 4.1, Unicode 6.0, TLS 1.2, Swing JLayer, translucent and shaped windows, enhanced locale support (IETF BCP 47 and UTR 35), NIO.2, elliptic-curve cryptography, etc.
There will also be several enhancements to the programming language (aka Coin). JAXP, JAXB, and JAX-WS will also be enhanced.
Lambda and Jigsaw have however been deferred to Java SE 8.
Try it out!
Oracle SOA Suite PS3 brings many bug fixes and some important new features.

Full BPEL 2.o support
The run time support for BPEL 2.0 has been already available for a while, what’s new is the design time support in JDeveloper 220.127.116.11.
When creating new BPEL process we can select which BPEL version we want to use:
In case you wanted to publish your applications directly from WebSphere Integration Developer to the remote WebSphere Process Server you might have come across the situation where you are able to add a remote server in your WID environment but when you try publishing your projects to the server, you receive the following error: “Failure uploading archive to server”.

Cloud services are accessible from anywhere where Internet connection exists. However, they can be accessed even faster than you might think.
Let us take Google Translate for example. We are doing much research and are making publications so we often need to translate something from a foreign language to Slovenian and back. You know, when you know that you know the word but just can’t remember it that instance … In this case we have to surf to http://translate.google.com, select target language (sometimes even source language if automatically detected one is not correct), enter text and thanks to AJAX we do not have to press the Translate button. Could we do it even faster?
Yes, we can.
