Updates Are Encouraged March 9, 2012,
Volume 169, Issue 1
The EOL date for Java SE 6 (November 2012) and the the EOLing of JavaFX 1.x are reported in Tori Wieldt's post on The Java Source. As Weildt is careful to point out, EOL doesn't mean you can't use a Java release, merely that public support has come to an end. Users are encouraged to update to the latest stable release (Java SE 7 has great features and enhancements, Weildt avers), and JavaFX 2 is capably taking its place among the supported solutions from Oracle. If you need support after the EOL, you can get Java SE Support from Oracle, Weildt notes.
