OpenJDK Coin - Small Changes to the Java Language
By pelegri on Jan 28, 2009
The Java language has seen a few big additions like Generics but also a number of small changes. These changes are less glamorous but they continuously improve the "fit and finish" of the language and I'm happy to see today's announcement by Joe on the new OpenJDK Project Coin targeted to JDK 7.
To get the full background check Joe's description of What's Needed to add a new Java language feature (spec changes, implementation, tests...); his announcement of small changes in JDK 7; and then the criteria for these changes.
