Hello guys!

i'm actually receiving many subscription for the discussion that
related to some java topics. And the latest one is about the Java SE 7 that is already published for public.
The nice thing is that the API is now officially opened!

But here the thing is what matters to me.
WHen I visit the oracle.com and finding the JDK From there....

I finally found there is Java Installer over there... but it is Java SE 6.

I'm kindda bit confused, what make it separated from Oracle itself?

for Java SE 6 it is located at here...
while Java SE 7 is located at here...
(two of them located differently).

correct me if i'm wrong;
is it Java SE 7 is not under Oracle anymore or something?

Java 6 and Java 7 are products of Oracle.

Read below mentioned link where it is mentioned that Java 7 has been build through OpenJDK project of Oracle.
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/7-138633.html

Official URL of OpenJDK project
http://openjdk.java.net/

Download Java 7 from Oracle website

Sort of. OpenJDK is an open source project that has contributors other than Oracle employees; for example OpenJDK 7 got a big contribution from Apple towards an OS X version of Java 7. Oracle does provide a JRE that's derived from OpenJDK, though, and that could be called an Oracle product.

Java SE 7 is not yet officially released. You can get an early access release at the moment. The official, final release will be at the end of July.
