Sorry, the title should say "idioms" not "idipms". How embarrasing...
Just received an email with a link to some Java idioms and thought I'd pass it on. Good stuff!
An idiom is a language specific approach to solving a problem. It can involve overcoming a weakness in or using a strength of the particular language. It is sort of like a small, language-specific, pattern.
