Long awaited batch processing and Java EE concurrency utilities are getting added to make the platform richer. A new API to build WebSocket driven applications is getting added. JSON parsing and generation is now included in the platform itself. JSF will add support for HTML5 forms. There are numerous other improvements coming with this latest version of the platform.
