Some bugs in Java 7 that programmers' programming should avoid (Please share)...
I did find this one web site that had a bunch of bugs. I can't find it now. I think this would be useful to Java 7 programmers so they know what to avoid until they are fixed...

Thanks,
John Price

A feature isn't normally a bug and visa versa.

There is indeed a bug caused by aggressive optimization done by the jvm. However in my opinion this shouldn't be a reason for not using Java SE 7. The fault only appears in certain situations and can be totally avoided by setting a flag.

I do know that features aren't bugs and vice versa. I just did not put quotes around the word "features". I do know a little of the optimization bug. It has something to do with loops. I wan't specifically talking about that one. I was talking about them all in general. Like, including that one, but not specifically that one bug. I found a website that had like 20 bugs or something found in Java. They were explained and it looked legit. If you can think of any others, that would be appreciated. If you could give an example and a fix, that would be even better. If you could give an example of the above optimization bug and how to fix it, that would be great. By "example", I mean code in relevant bugs.

Thanks,
