And Now For Something Completely Different

This is the last entry on this blog. After almost ten years with Sun and Java, it’s time to do something new. Today is my last day at Sun.

There are of course, plenty of potentially important things still going on in Javaland, like modules, dynamic language support and closures, but I know how long and painful a process it is to get any such initiative to fruition; so I leave that joyful task to others.

In particular, Alex Buckley (alex.buckley@sun.com) will be taking over the responsibility for the JLS and JVMS. He will have a blog at blogs.sun.com/abuckley, and I’m sure he’ll have wonderful tales to tell. Alex is young, enthusiastic, very knowledgeable - and polite as well. You’re in for a radical change.

Feel free to send me mail about Java at gilad.bracha@sun.com; I am safe in the knowledge that it will bounce; as of 5pm Pacific time today, gilad.bracha@sun.com will cease to be. If, on the other and you want an answer, send your queries, or comments, or suggestions for wonderful new features, to Alex.

I have a new, private blog. However since I won’t be responsible for Java anymore, you won’t want to read it.

Enough said. Good luck to you all - you’ll need it.

Gilad Bracha, Computational Theologist Emeritus
