Managing a MongoDB deployment? Take a load off and live migrate to MongoDB Atlas, the official automated service, with little to no downtime.

Although Sun Bug Database is somewhat unpopular it is at least one way to influence the future of Java. I have read many articles on the web where developers demand for including closures in Java 7. It is really strange that the issue 5014235 "Closures support instead of annonymous inner classes" (submitted in March 2004) only has 24 votes!

 Update: now (Oct, 24) the issue has already 105 votes and should appear on the list of "Top 25 RFE's" soon. I would like to thank everybody who voted and hope that our votes will be taken into account and that closures will make it into Java 7.

MongoDB Atlas is the easiest way to run the fastest-growing database for modern applications — no installation, setup, or configuration required. Easily live migrate an existing workload or start with 512MB of storage for free.
