Hello everyone,

I have been reading the forum for a few days, gathering precious knowledge from all of you, and I finally decided to register to kick things in high gear, since I am 3 weeks away from my SCJP6 exam.

Here goes my first question: The Java Language Specification (3rd Ed.) published by Sun seems to cover up to 1.5. Is there a newer version that I am unaware of, or some set of addenda that covers the changes from 1.5 to 1.6?

Thanks in advance! I expect to ask questions in the coming days, and to also hopefully attempt to provide some answers.

Regards,

Ruben

Welcome to JavaRanch.

As far as I know, there have not been any changes to the language itself between Java 5 and 6. There have ofcourse been changes to the standard library, but the standard library is not described in the JLS.

Thanks for your answer, Jesper. That would explain while no new editions of the TJLS or TJPL have been published by Sun since then.
