There's going to be a live webcast on 7/7.

Here in the Netherlands, Oracle is having a meetup at their office in Utrecht, where you can go to see the webcast and people will present what's new in Java 7. I'm going there.

I bet you got your invitation from NLJUG I also got one but the next morning I'm hopefully getting my drivers licence so I need to get a good night sleep so decide it would be better not to go.

Yes! Good luck with your driver's license exam! (I don't want to scare you, but it took me 7 times before I got it )

(That are a lot of tries. I have faith that I'll get it in 1 try.)

On topic: I'm curious how fast the change from Java 6 to Java 7 will happen. By that I mean the usage of Java 7 specific constructs in libraries/frameworks/etc.

Typically with widely-used libraries like the ones from Apache, it has historically taken several years before switching to newer versions. It's a lot of work supporting two different versions of a code base (as of course you know very well) and if you're trying to support a code base run by people whose managers are leery of switching to a new version which was only released three years ago, the installed base is extremely heavy.

Case in point: I'm trying to get our applications upgraded to Java 6 where I work. I don't have any managers slowing my progress, so the job is mostly done. I just have to upgrade my Websphere version to complete the task, which isn't an easy thing to do, but I expect it might get done by the end of this year.
