With the recent release of Java SE 7 the Java platform is back on the move, addressing the needs of developers as platforms and applications change. This session will briefly recap recent developments in Java SE 7 and the Java Community Process before moving onto the current ideas for features in Java SE 8. Discussions are underway within Oracle about the main themes for Java SE 9 and beyond. We'll conclude with an open discussion around what features the audience would like to see included in future releases of the Java platform. Key points from this will be passed back to Java SE product management in Oracle.
