Of late I have been bombarded about JDK 7 left, right, up, down and center. A search on the www isnt giving me much info as to what I would like to know - Apart from being able to perform sorting much faster than 6, what advantages do I have of choosing JDK7 over JDK 6?

There are lot of new features in JDK 7. Of course the latest versions always are better than the previous ones and its wise to go with the newer version Few which I could list- Strings in switch and other java languages enhancements in Project Coin, Automatic Resource management- you need not worry about closing the resources (file streams for example). The forum which I mentioned in the previous post has a few discussions around Java7/8
