A buddy said today that one change between v6 and v7 is that v7 will close for instance database connection "automatically" but couldn't JBoss do that already with Java 5? I've seen "JBoss is closing the connection for you." in the JBoss' logs many years ago with Java 5 (or even 4). What do you think? I almost read the same question here but not exactly:
The answer to the question above does not list the feature we were talking about this morning. What did my buddy mean? What do you think is the one or the few major technical changes? I understand Java 6 has not even support anymore but that is a policy and not the diff analyses between v6 and v7.
