Subject Java 7 and Hadoop
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2012 21:03:30 GMT
Java 7 update 4 has been released.  It is even available for MacOS X from Oracle:

Java 6 will reach end of life in about 6 months.   After that point, there will be no more
public updates from Oracle for Java 6, even security updates.
You can of course pay them for updates or build your own OpenJDK.

The entire Hadoop ecosystem needs to test against Java 7 JDKs this year.  I will be testing
some small clusters of ours with JDK 7 in about a month, and my internal projects will start
using Java 7 features shortly after.

See the JDK roadmap:
