      Pros

      Java 6 is end of life since February 2013.

      Required for:

      Improved performances in various scripting languages thanks to new Invoke dynamic

      Nice to have

      • Strings in switch Statements. Interesting for various parsers.
      • The try-with-resources Statement. Nicer code when playing with Closable resources.
      • "Multi-catch". Allow catching several exceptions in the same catch block.

      Cons

      Still no used much in production.
