Will the new metadata feature(s) in Java 7 in any way help decode files (aka Music, Video, etc). Like, will it be easier to find .mp3 tags (title, artist, length, etc). My guess is no, because they would have to do it for that for a bunch (and would be media specific). I am just wondering....Maybe with "UserDefinedFileAttributeView" ? Here is the link (Java tutorials) : http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/essential/io/fileAttr.html Thanks,
EDIT: Generally, for Java 7, does the JDK convert your code to be backwards compatible with other versions (IE : Java 6). If I were to try to run Java 7 code on a Java 6 machine, would it work?
