A quick weekend wrap-up of a couple of news-worthy items this week:

  • As Mark Reinhold reports, JDK 7 has reached feature-complete. This is great news as it means that JDK 7 is coming along pretty much on time and beta-testing can begin as soon as the Developer Preview is released.
  • Bruno Souza, representing the 40,000 members of SouJava, has been nominated by Oracle to the JCP Executive Committee. Read more about it on Henrik Stahl’s blog, or Patrick Curran’s blog.
  • The Java Spotlight episode 14 features Geertjan Wielenga, NetBeans Principle Product Manager at Oracle. Geerjan talks about the latest new and cool features in the NetBeans IDE as well as the benefits of using the NetBeans RCP platform for your own desktop applications.
  • And, last but not least, Facebook has announced a Java ME version of their mobile Facebook application, available immediately and working on more than 2,500 phones from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG, and others. For more information, see “The Daily Dose”.

Happy weekend! Cheers,
