I was reading Struts 2 in Action, and in that, at one place when talking about transferring of parameter values to fields, there was written

Well the new Java 5 features especially Annotation and Generics have made life so simple and interesting, that I said to myself WOW, Tiger rules. So I'll shout here

A bit too late to discover it, with Java 7 around the corner, isn't it?

I am going to like Java 7 as well. Escpecially the JSR310 if it comes anyway. http://tech.puredanger.com/java7

Well I have only recently used the full power of Generics and Annotations (I'm working on EJB 3 which uses annotations extensively) so when I see old code, I fell like I'm in heaven so I brought this forwar .

As far as the Java 7 specifications go, the list is very long for me to read so I'll like to wait for Java 7 rather than reading the specs

For the people who don't know this:

Java releases used to have code names. Java 5 was Tiger, Java 6 was Mustang. Sun officially abandoned the code names, but it looks like they failed because Java 7 still has a code name: Dolphin.
