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.

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

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.
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).
