Hey, I don't really like inner classes all that much - I just spend (or spent) a lot of time correcting people's misunderstandings of them. I think anonymous classes are the only inner classes I actually use with any regularity. I do use static member classes fairly often, but of course, you weren't talking about those, right?
Hmmm... I think my favorite thing about Java is all the compile-time and runtime checks that get performed to give you an informative error message when you do something wrong.

Hm. Jim, there is nothing to be ashamed about inner classes. Why to deny your obvious passion to them? Purists may object your connections with Anonymous inner classes, but we know they are much better than static member ones.

I only disliked the Streams/IO part and now recognizing how important they really r? Anyway, Threads r really excellent to think abt!

Map is crazy about exceptions...

Which part of exceptions do you find particularly sexy? The trying part or the catching part ?

Without IO there wouldn't be any network programming in java.
They are also so crucial in servlets and in RMI.
Any way coming to your question Map, EJB attracts me a lot.

regds,

I am too shocked to say anything. I never suspected that you (of all the people) had a dirty mind.

This one is too sophisticated for me. The innuendo is too subtle for my feeble brain . It went wayyyyyy over my head. Would some clever oracle expain this to me ?

Objection. Extreme vulgarity.

I second Mr. Kurchatov's opinion. I should admit, I did not understand what Jim is talking about until I saw this

Back when I was a single-component guy, Collections rocked my world. Now I spend too much time sampling all of her wares. Last week I was on the tails of castor, this and next week, who knows?

The concept of Classloaders is by far the sexiest feature in Java.


Java's security architecture is pretty cool too.

JDBC. I love it when I can *connect* to her (the database).
With JDBC, I can scan her through my select queries, scroll up and down her resultset!, I can update and not to mention run "triggers" on her and have access to her stored procedures.
And when I am done with her, I just close the connection!
