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!"

I've never been canoeing before, but I imagine there must be just a few simple heuristics you have to remember... Yes, don't fall out, and don't hit rocks.

Working...
