Session Title: "Java SE 7: The Java Language Evolves".

Session abstract: It's been a long time coming, but the wait has been worth it. Java SE 7 will provide new features to developers to make their lives easier and more productive. This session will look at the new features covering syntax changes in the Java language (Project Coin); performance improvements in the JVM for dynamically typed languages (The DaVinci Machine) and various additions to the core libraries (NIO2, the fork-join framework, etc). We'll also briefly look at the ideas for features to be in cluded in Java SE 8.
