Last December Sun released Java SE 6. One of features of Java SE 6 was noted as support for Web 2.0 development. After reading David Brown's article, I cant claim that I have understood clearly .
What does it mean by Support for Web 2.0 Development in Java SE 6?

I think Sun is just trying to jump on the Web 2.0 bandwagon. There's nothing in Java 6 that makes the class of applications labelled "Web 2.0" in particular easier to develop. Maybe they're trying to say that Java 6 makes it easier to develop Web 2.0 stuff because Java is better now, and since Java can be used to implement Web 2.0 stuff in general, it supports it better. I see no close connection between supporting a scripting language API and Web 2.0.
