Does java 7 address any of the features from ehCache/big memory?
Many frameworks suggest using direct buffering to overcome jvm limitations, what does new java say about it?

Sorry, but Java 7 does not address those types of features. I am not aware of any feature in Java 7 that might provide similar capabilities.
