Rich diagnostics landed on javac

I and Jon presented our langtools BOF - thanks for everyone who decided to attend despite the unfortunate schedule (we were running in parallel with the 'after dark' bash!). The BOF has been mainly focused on the javac diagnostic improvements in JDK 7 (which are currently in the langtools workspace and planned for integration in M4). We showed a demo which (I hope) gave a feeling of the enhanced capabilities of the javac's new diagnostic subsystem. See the slides for more details. Some pointed out the need for full-blown XML diagnostics in modern build systems - stay tuned, as we are actually planning to do some work in this area in the JDK7 timeframe.
