The beta for the
Java EE 5 SDK
is now available
and a set of tools that works with it is available
(the follow-up to
Java EE 5,
and that for J2SE 5.0 is Java SE 6 -
the "2" is dropped and the "Java" is spelled out -
it all makes sense but it can be confusing).
Today's releases are a pretty big deal and
there are already several blogs, discussions, technical papers,
The World is smaller and it only takes a few minutes to get an email
message across almost any two points.
Geographic distance does not matter,
but in one of my earliest blogs I argued that
Time Zones Still Matter in the Internet.
But that statement was based on email interactions
and for the last few months I've had quite a bit of experience in
the use of blogs over distant Time Zones.
