See the question java/Jdk 7 release schedule for mission-critical production use?. While this question likely does not belong in so, I am wondering which is the right se forum to ask.

It is impossible today to find a better audience to answer this question then se. But which site?

    I think it's too speculative (as phrased) for anywhere on the network.

    Speculation leads to subjective discussions and argument, which is specifically discouraged on the SE network.

Nowhere. It is entirely too subjective, and is too localized in time. Remember, just because a question can be asked doesn't mean it has a home on SE.


Interestingly, your question is very similar to one already asked here.

Crucial difference? That question - and the answers - focus on what you can do to avoid unexpected problems in a new JDK release. Speculation as to the quality and release schedule of future updates is kept to a minimum.

I rather suspect that's what you're looking for anyway. But if not, please note that the SE system is currently ill-equipped to answer such questions. However, I've proposed a change that would allow them to be served here - vote it up...
