J2SE5: Getting ready for the Tiger (Part II)

Continuing (Part I) with the remaining features of Tiger release of J2SE:

  • varargs–C-style argc, argv.No count though, argv is an implicit array when defined in the specified notation
  • Concurrency–Semaphores, thread locks, thread safe queues, et al. Dijkstra would be pleased. But, Java took close to 10 years to have these constructs
  • New Profiling API–Byte code instrumentation, native profiling
  • Desktop Client–New Ocean theme
  • java.xml–XML is now a core part of the standard edition
