It is that time of year when folks look back at the events that made the year soo memorable. I was reading a nice article regarding the top Java stories of 2007 and I thought I quickly jot down the top Java related development and software releases.
Here is an good list of top Java books available for preview on Google Books. Google Books provides scans of thousands of textbooks. The scans are not the best, most books have visible scan defects in them.
Even though the scans are not the best, there are some features that just work well.
Even though it has been more than a month since JavaOne, I hope you enjoy this blog post here where I list the best of the best at this year's JavaOne.
Now that I have had some time to work with Java SE 6, I thought I would share a list what I think are the top features and biggest letdowns.
I was sold into scripting the JVM since back in the day when the only scripting option was Jython and BeanShell. Personally I would have preferred if Groovy was the default scripting language that came with Java SE 6.
