Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine, GlassFish Community Manager, explains that there is a lot of good things slated for Java EE 7. "The theme for Java EE 7 is "The Cloud"...we're talking about multi-tenancy, application versioning, support for NRDBMS stores but also about modularity, trying to leverage what will be done at the JavaSE level," he explains in his blog. Of course, all it's still early and a lot can change once the expert groups form and get to work. Nevertheless, there is a lot to be excited about!
