News and views from the Java SE Development-Kit Community
Last week brought a first Early Access build of JDK 7u60: Build b01
. A list of changes
is available in the JDK Bug System. As the focus
of the JDK 7u60 release is plain old bug fixes, this first build contains bug fixes across the JDK code base. As part of the Early Access build community testing
efforts, the Apache Lucene team has given ...
The annotation processing API, both the processor-specific portion of the API in
javax.annotation.processing and the language modeling portions in
javax.lang.model.*, are being updated to support the new language features in Java SE 8.

Maintenance Draft Review 2.
Applying a timestamp when you sign a JAR is strongly recommended, as it
allows you to prove that you signed the JAR during the time interval
that your code signing certificate was still valid.
I want to show how easy it is to create 3D charts in a Java application, so here I will walk through the steps to create the following chart in a small Java Swing application:
The chart shows the number of survivors and non-survivors from the sinking of the Titanic, split between men vs women/children, and broken down by passenger class (1st, 2nd, 3rd ...
After reaching 8000 @OpenJDK
followers back in June
, it's time for another update: 9000! Since it has historically taken a couple of months to for another thousand followers to appear, the number of followers may cross the 10k mark around FOSDEM. Which reminds me - the Call for Participation
for the Free Java devroom
at FOSDEM closes in a few days, so I really need ...

This blog post is the third in a series of posts on using unsupported functionality in the Oracle JDK and/or Java Mission Control. I will use the JMC flight recorder parser in this example, and since the JMC parser is unsupported I’ll just go ahead and use my usual disclaimer: The following blog entry will […]
Today I am releasing a new product, Orson Charts
, a 3D chart library for the Java(tm) platform:
Orson Charts supports a range of different chart types, and has a built-in pure Java rendering engine that requires only Java2D's Graphics2D API. This means that Orson Charts is easily deployed (no OpenGL or Java3D dependencies to worry about) and that 3D charts can easily be exported ...
This blog post explains the relational key – a little piece of event attribute metadata that is used to associate attributes in different event types with each other. This is a quick break in my series of posts about unsupported functionality, the reason for the break being that you will need to be armed with […]
