Hi vats Rao,

Its always better to go with java se 5.0.(055) for programming better.
you have templates,Type checked collections,enum,(Regular expression stuff Pattern, Matcher),StringBuilder,enhanced for. (And included some old RuntimeExceptions, NullPointerException,NumberFormatException,IllegalStateException,IllegalMonitorStateException.
ClassCastException,StackOverflowError,AssertionError. for this exam to make us aware of thier cause)

Do you want to miss this suff ?

Coming to which version companies use ?
Be optimistic. First of all we need to get ready for the future.

Thanks & Regards, T.Srinivasan
