Hello guys!

I�m on B&S, and doing it on JDK 1.6

I found two interesting features from 1.6 to be used so far.
The first one is in the Arrays class

I think its usefull when writing records to the data file, like the example below

The other interesting class is javax.swing.table.TableRowSorter<M>, which provide sorting and filtering using a TableModel. The result of a findByCriteria could be filtered by the TableRowSorter for displaying on the JTable.

What do you guys think? Do you know any other 1.6 feature that could make our lives easier?

A general question:

Are we allowed to use Java6 ?

hi Eddy,

Yes, JDK 6 is allowed.

See instructions.html:

You may develop your code using any implementation of the Java 2 platform, but the submission that you return must have been tested and shown to work under a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform and that platform must not have been superseded by a new production version for more than 18 months by the time you make your submission.

I agree. Here's the link:
