An interesting overview: http://www.theserverside.com/blogs/showblog.tss?id=JDK15

His comment on Enums is a little bit odd:


Sure it looks cool, but I still don't think I have a use for it.


I think that the Strategy/State pattern is one of the most important for effective OOP, and it's a great thing to have language support for it - the Typesafe Enum pattern is just a little bit too verbose without it...
