The book does not discuss about RE becos it is not new to Java 5, EL is not an area of Java 5, it is under the specication of JSTL 1.1, which is part of J2EE.

This book mainly focus on the new features, such as Generics, Enumeration, etc.

Hesham:

As Nicholas says, my book covers the major new features in Java 2, v5, which are:

generics
autoboxing/unboxing
enumerations
the enhanced for loop
varargs
metadata
formatted I/O
major library changes

thanks!
