Need Java 7? We got Java 7.
By: Bill Buros.
Last year we posted that the IBM Java 7 was in open beta mode, but along the way we neglected to post the news that the IBM Java 7 kits are now fully available across a number of platforms and operating systems. By now, this is relatively older news, IBM Java 7 was announced back in September 2011, but it's always good to remind people and teams that it's available.
This latest IBM Java is available on Power systems and across the RHEL and SLES distros available for Power. We use the latest Java 7 across a number of performance workloads and benchmarks. Customers and product teams can and do take advantage of the new features available in Java 7.
