Subject java1.5 features of interest
Date Wed, 07 Apr 2004 16:41:02 GMT

some interesting things to worry about soon, based on the change log: 
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/jcp/beta1/index.html

1. a new ProcessBuilder : 
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/jcp/beta1/apidiffs/java/lang/ProcessBuilder.html

Either this eliminates all the platform specific grunge, or it adds new 
complexity

2. an XML format for properties.

3. InetAddr.isReachable(). I can see a good utility class for deployment 
there

<reachable host="gecko" />

We also get getenv back, which would be good. With that and 
processbuilder it should be much easier to bring up ant on any new 
platform; all you need to address at port time are primarily filesystem 
diffs.
