Oracle has ideas to update the standard edition of outsource Java development platform. They are constantly into improvising java development and ensuring Java developers derive maximum benefits out of it. After SE7 they have plans to release the Java SE 8. The previews of both Java FX2.0 and Java 7 are made available by the Oracle. They have ideas to make public the Java SE 7 on the Mac Operating System. However this version is for the Java developers for the consumers they are planning to come up with another version which will be released by the end of 2012.
The development of the JDK8 and Java SE7 is hosted by the Open JDK Community. They are the best in Java development as they get constant support from the oracle and other developers. One of the recent joiners to the Open JDK Community is Twitter. Now the engineers of twitter can also work for the Java Development.
Oracle is putting its best effort in order to offer competitive and innovative products to the market. In order to ensure that java developers are able to leverage the maximum advantages, Oracle is also trying to merge the Oracle JRockit JVM and Oracle Java HotSpot JVM as part of this initiative.
JDK 7 has the following features in it

It has a lot of features that is motivated by the JRockit
It has a lot of meta data storage
With the update
The number of downloads of the JDK has drastically increased. It has increased by91%.

JDK 8 is anticipated to have the following features in it
To improve the productivity of the java developers and to give better leverage to the CPU’S that are multi core there is the Lambda expressisions
These Lambda expressions also enhance the processing of bulk data.
A Java native module system which is called the Project jigsaw. This will help in making a java platform that is fully modular. This is because this feature will make it simpler to package, deploy and construct applications. This in turn will allow custom made deployments on embedded systems, clients and servers.
A better version of Java Client known as JavaFX3.0 will be introduced as part of Java development
There is a multi touch option and also supports modern device.
