Does anyone know the codename for Java SE 8?

Thanks,
Robert

As far as I can see it's "JSR 337".

Oracle is not nearly as much fun as Sun, is it?

We should give it one! How about "Cuddles"?

Thanks, I will ping the JSR-337 contact, Mark Reinhold.

I need the codename for my Java Pocket Guide that I'm updating.

Shame on you for missing Oak (Java 1.0)

Nah, Oak was before Java 1.0. Java 1.0 was called Java 1.0. And Oak wasn't the codename of a particular version, it was the name of the language. So it wouldn't have fit on Paul's list, really.

For 8, I propose Wombat.

I did leave it off the list deliberately, but not for any particular reason that I can remember. But I'm going to take this reason and retroactively say that's why I did it.

Fair enough Mike, I knew Java stemmed from the Oak language but I was under the impression it was also the codename given to Java 1.0. I stand corrected.

Spider. 8 legs, and a strong association with webs.

A good idea!

Will there be performance improvements? Then maybe "speedy spider".

So just One word and SPIDER suites the most I think. :)

Java SE 8 doesn't have a code name. (Neither does JDK 8.)

FYI, Sun discontinued the use of code names for Java SE releases long before the Oracle acquisition. They're just not worth the inevitable trademark-law hassles.

Note that Redhat/Fedora 'still' has codenames for their OS distributions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Fedora_versions)

In my opinion, I think it would be cool if Oracle could find a way to give Java SE 8 a codename.

Hi,

I just wanted to make sure before we release the Java 8 Pocket Guide that there is no codename for Java SE 8...

This is what our table looks like, notice the '---' for Java SE 8's codename.



Does anyone know if a codename was ever given to Java SE 8? (I assume not, based on the previous comments).

Thanks,
Robert

I suppose 'AboutBleedingTime' is too long (and doesn't fit with the animal motif).

I just hope they don't choose one that's on the IUCN Red List.

No, Oracle stopped with code names as "Mark Reinhold" (somehow I don't believe he's the real one ) said above.

Very fitting. Has my vote so far.
