All:
- Continuing our discussion of interview questions.
- Here is one that I would like to pose to all members of JavaRanch.
- Question:
"Given your current knowledge of Java, what enhancements or features would you like to see incorporated in the next release of Java?"
"You may not discuss revision of Swing or AWT classes"

1)complete removal of primitive types.
2)templates.
3)sun purchases the .gif patent from compusys or whoever owns it.. & bundles it free with java.
4)something like SPAG (the fortan source code formatter) to tidy up source files.
5)some decent demo apps. remember all those cool progs microsoft used to ship with the C++ SDK?
..etc, etc, etc.

Here some others I remember Marty Hall posting on a Java Developer Journal article:
- Remove all deprecated methods.
- Eliminate the need for classpath.

Would like to see: Regular Expression Checking.
-----
Problem: How do you check for properly formated e-mail address?
- Would hope that regular expressions would help. I know this was pretty easy to do in a language like Lisp.

I agree with John. The regex does not seem powerful enough at the moment for these kind of things.
