Does anyone know the codename for Java SE 8?

Thanks,

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
