This week's book giveaway is in the Other Open Source APIs forum. We're giving away four copies of Storm Applied and have Sean Allen, Peter Pathirana & Matthew Jankowski on-line! See this thread for details.
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?

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.
