Project Lambda Falls Silent

No Closure For JDK7?

Jessica Thornsby

Will there be closures in JDK7? According to David Flanagan, it’s looking highly unlikely.

He has posted that, despite a release schedule that states JDK 7 will be “feature complete” on June 3rd, the closures specification currently under development by Project Lambda is only at version 0.15. He expresses his frustration with engineers at Sun/Oracle, claiming they have become unresponsive on the Project Lambda mailing list.

“Is there anyone one at Oracle with the time and the authority to alter either the release schedule or the feature list for JDK 7?” he asks.
