I just finished up my series on the Collection and Map interfaces for the JavaRanch newsletter. Is there any topic that ranchers would like to see covered? I was thinking of writing about the new java.nio package.

Assertions! -- its actually on the new exam, so I'd put Assertions in front of NIO as importance... seeing as though IO and AWT got yanked from the exam...

I know - I have read several comparisons. And I have read a book and a half on the subject. (Gotta finish that book . . .)
It just that I respect Toms opinion, and I would be interested in a formal comparision by him. Actually he has spouted random comments both good and bad at various occasions, and it would be nice to have them consolidated.

I would love to see article on Assertation. Since it's going to be a new topic in JDK 1.4 test.
NIO is also important but Assertation would be my first choice. Thanks.

Actually spouting comments is my favorite thing to do!
Now on to the serious side... I hate you all! I have no interest in assertions! I wanted to write an article on NIO because that was what interested me. Don't you realize that when I ask for your opinion I am only asking for you to agree with whatever I say!
Phew... now that that is off my chest, assertions it is. I have been thinking about writing a C# vs. Java article because I love controversy.
