I"m afraid you're going to have to sit down and do some reading on your own. All the information you seek is readily available, but if you're after a term paper (or whatever you're looking for), you're going to have to read it all and process it yourself.

One item to process is... Sun marketing changed the numbering scheme starting with Java 5. So the question should be "diff b/w Java 1.4, 5, 6?".

Try Googling for "history of java".

Actually the changes from Java 1.4 to Java 1.5 were pretty dramatic that they changed it to Java 5. The changes from Java 5 to 1.6 is not very drastic but I know there is some features like Closures and so with which I'm not quite familiar too. But if you want to check out the new features that's been added to Java 1.5, O'Reilly got a nice notebook-like book named "O'Reilly - Java 1.5 Tiger (A Developer's Notebook)". Its concise and to the point. Hope it helped.

I am afraid we can't allow copyrighted material be distributed directly or indirectly through JavaRanch, without permission from the copyright holder. So I have had to delete part of a recent post.

It's all right now.

And closures are planned for Java7, not Java 6.

I don't know if they are planned yet. They were proposed but I have no idea if they have been included in the final list of additions.

Yes, I think you are right, Rob, closures are still only a proposal.
