The Java Enterprise Edition 7 offers new features for enhanced HTML5 support, helps developers being more productive and further helps meeting enterprise demands. As a developer you will write a lot less boilerplate code and have better support for the latest Web applications and frameworks. There are a couple of new features in Java EE 7 and Arun compiled a list of the top ten most prominent ones a while ago already and you can see the complete slide-deck as part of the Java EE 7 samples project on GitHub. This is a quick recap of them:
- Java API for WebSocket 1.0 (JSR 356):
- Batch Applications for the Java Platform (JSR 352):
In-built support for Batch applications allows to remove dependency on third-party frameworks. Also see the Batch Applications tutorial on WildFly for further information.
- JSON Processing (JSR 353):
Native support for JSON processing allows to make the application light-weight and getting rid of third party libraries.
- Concurrency Utilities for Java EE (JSR 236):
Concurrency Utilities extends JSR standard Java SE Concurrency Utilities and add asynchronous capabilities to Java EE application components.
- Simplified JMS API (JSR 368):
JMS API has been extremely simplified by leveraging CDI, Autocloseable, and other features of the language.
