首先，他们发布了Java SE 7 for Mac 的 一个“开发者预览”，正式版本定于2012年第二季度发布。它标志着Mac OS X 下的Java的首个官方发布；虽不是来自苹果，却也包含了由苹果贡献的代码。
Oracle同时带来了新的、基于Java语言的 JavaFX 2.0 Beta版本，并与此同时宣布了他们在OpenJDK 项目下 将其开源并集成入JDK 8的意向。而且他们还 演示了运行在iOS和Android上面的JavaFX应用程序（可 在此查看图片和更多细节），虽然他们并未就其作任何许诺。即使以上这些都只是Oracle为了掩饰自己对Java的无能，我相信，许多开发者都会乐于看到，Oracle终于还是给Java带来了一丝新的气息。

Oracle Previews Java SE 7 for Mac; JDK 8 To Include JavaFX

In the midst of the dual events Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne (overshadowed, of course, by the iPhone event) Oracle took a number of steps that show that they still care about making a go of Java on the desktop.
First, they released a "Developer Preview" of Java SE 7 for Mac, the final version of which is now scheduled for Q2 2012. This marks the first official release of Java for Mac OS X which isn't coming from Apple, but still incorporates code that Apple contributed.
Oracle also brought the new, Java-language-based JavaFX 2.0 out of beta, while simultaneously announcing their intention to open-source it under the OpenJDK project and integrate it into JDK 8. And they demoed JavaFX apps running on iOS and Android (see here for pics and more details), although they're not making any promises on that count. Cue the "I'm not dead yet" jokes, etc., etc. Still, I'm sure many developers out there are happy to see Oracle finally blowing some fresh wind into these sails.
