Bottomline main fetures of J2SE5 are:


Enhanced for Loop
Typesafe Enums
Static Import
Virtual Machine
Class Data Sharing
Garbage Collector Ergonomics
Server-Class Machine Detection
Thread Priority Changes
Fatal Error Handling
High-Precision Timing Support

With the 1.4.2 release we provided two new look and feels for Swing: XP and GTK. Rather than taking a break, in 5.0 we're providing two more look and feels: Synth, a skinnable look and feel, and Ocean, a new theme for Metal. Beyond look and feels, we've added printing support to JTable, which makes it trivial to get a beautiful printed copy of a JTable. Lastly, after seven years, we've made jFrame.add equivalent to jFrame.getContentPane().add().
