End of Public Update for Java SE6 has Come
Guys move to Java SE7, if you have not already done. We will not get any further public updates from Oracle for Java SE6 after February 2013. There is one last planned update which is coming up in February 2013.
Previously the last planned public update was November 2012 and it was extended to Feb 2013. After the public support ends, there is a premier Java SE support program available for which you may need $.
Its been more than a year now since we had Java SE7 and it comes with great features like nio package. So don’t hesitate to move on it will be worth doing.
I have written an earlier article about End of Service Life which was written when Java SE 5 reached its end. In comparison with Java SE5, SE6 got one additional year of public update. But a news to note is, Java SE will get public updates for only three years, in comparison with SE6 it is only half of the duration.
