Java2 SDK v. 1.4 Released 362

pangloss writes: "Yay: XML, built-in Perl-ish regex, jdbc 3.0, asserts, IPv6, lots of other goodies. Release notes and incompatibilities. And I think this means I can use my wheel-mouse in NetBeans without that extra module ;) Download it here." WilsonSD adds: "There are many cool new features including a New I/O package, an Assert Facility and enhanced performance." Some other random Java notes: O'Reilly has an essay about why you won't see any open source J2EE implementations, and Kodak has filed a patent-infringement claim against Sun regarding Java.

    I agree. If I had a Beowulf cluster for every time someone said...oh never mind.

    I find it funny that the post mentions a lawsuit from Kodak and the O'Reilly essay about Java says:
    [...] At the same time,
    Sun loves to have Kodak moments with some parts of the open source community -- most notably, Apache -- who increasingly feel used and abused [...]
    (Emphasis mine) Heh.

    Assertions can be dangerous. Many people make confident assertions about subjects concerning which they have little knowldge. For example, me talking about coding. :)

    The 4 GB address space limit has become a severe limit on Java bloat. It's good to see that Sun finally addresses this problem.

    Autopr0n.com actualy runs using the first beta of JDK1.4. I needed the new ImageIO libraries for the, um, 'site previewer :P' (and the regexs made some of the parsing I'm doing a lot easier :). I tried 1.4b3 but it was far more unstable, and my regexs broke.

    It must be hell on productivity working on Autopr0n, what with the spank sessions every thirty minutes or so.

    Remember, this is Sun the people who released Solaris 2.0 which:
    - was the first version of Solaris
    - declared itself to be SunOS 5.0
    - was an implementation of System V Release 4.0

    Obviously being able to count is not a prerequisite for getting a job in Sun's marketing department.

    I use Java at work and I had to beat 5 fucking team leads with a crow-bar to convince them to move to Java 1.2. Now they all run the other way when they see me coming -- it's a lot harder to get near them with a crow-bar. By the time my company gets done with its final focus meeting to decide that moving to 1.4's a good idea, Sun will be releasing Java 2.4 (With telepathic user interface code.) If I get all used to how great Java 1.4 is, work will suck more, and it already sucks so much that light can't escape.
