+ - Sun Released Java 6 Much Sooner Than Expected!

Submitted by

jgertzen writes "From the Java home page at Sun: Java SE 6 is the current major release of the Java SE platform. Java SE 6 features and enhancements to the platform are summarized in the Umbrella JSR (JSR 270). Areas of improvement include: New Security Features and Enhancements, Integrated Web Services, Scripting Language Support (JSR 223), Enhanced Management and Serviceability, Increased Developer Productivity & Improved User Experience. The new Scripting Language Support is one of the most anticipated features because it includes a new framework and API for binding to scripting languages as well as a built-in version of the Mozilla Rhino engine for JavaScript. If Ajax hasn't skyrocketed JavaScript's popularity enough, this is certain to do it!"

When the bosses talk about improving productivity, they are never talking about themselves.
