JDK 1.7.0_13 has been out for a few days, and you are still talking about 1.7.0_11 as if it were hot off the press news. You are trashing Java unfairly. Java has had 3 security breaches in 15 years, and then only in the rarely used Applet feature. Other languages have no security sandbox whatsoever. Java had a leak it its. Microsoft sends me 2 security fixes a DAY! Please get some perspective. I get the feeling you have no first hand knowledge of Java. You are just passing on politically motivated trash talk.
