Please post links to any RFEs that you have submitted to SUN (as a result of this forum) here.

If you are aware of any RFEs that are related to the topics listed in the 'Best Threads - Summary' thread (http://forums.java.net/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=143) please post them here.

We need to submit the best ideas that are not already SUN RFEs to SUN.

I'd also want to associate any RFEs with that 'Best Threads - Summary' index so that everyone here can go vote on them.

-Tim

Here is an RFE for immutable objects:

Note the RFE in the above list is for const references to objects and is marked by Sun as Closed - Will not be fixed.

I want to emphasize what Tim said - "go vote on them".

Whenever you see the RFE or Bug that you are interested in seeing in the next release, please, don't hesitate, GO vote for it.

If you do submit an RFE, please ensure that you do a good job at it. Scan other ideas and make sure you've got everything. Then search the bugs database (which contains RFEs) and ensure that everything is not duplicated. If related issues were closed for a previous version its probably worthwhile submitting it again against Mustang if its on the Best Threads and Ideas summary.
