Java 1.5, due for release later this year, is going to have a number of new features, including typesafe enums. Generic collections are another big enhancement. For more information, you can start here.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
