Java 7 - good, bad or somewhere in between

Not sure about the new Java 7 JDK? It seems you would not be alone if you are still wavering on the new JDK (anticipated to be released in early 2010 - see my blog posting on Java 7 and Java EE 6 here). A recent poll on java.net (“The Source for Java Technology Collaboration” as deemed by Sun) indicates that almost half of 488 surveyed in the Java community (203 – 41% to be exact) don’t think it addresses “significant” problems. See the poll results and comments left by others here.

It is not a scientific survey, but the number seemed to capture some attention. In fact, the ServerSide.com noted the survey and mentioned the “Diversity of opinions on JDK 7” in its weekly email newsletter. Have you tried out the new JDK? If so, what are your thoughts? Will your organization move to Java 7 quickly or slowly. Provide your answer to my Java 7 questions at right.
