Oracle has informed about Java 1.6 End Of Life.
The EOL date of Java SE 6 is November 2012. EOL doesn't mean you can't use a Java release. EOL just means the end of public support and fixes, and for that reason, you are encouraged to update to the latest stable release(Java SE 7 has great features and enhancements!). If you need support after the EOL, you can get Java SE Support from Oracle.
Deadline has been changed
