What’s new in Java 6?

Although it’s been around for a while, I’m still trying to get acquainted with version 6 of Java SE.

It has many neat new features, such as integrated scripting, enhanced JDBC features and better Web service support. See Java 6 for some more details on it’s offerings.

Also, even if you’re not interested in the new API and functionality, you might to consider just using it’s JRE as Java 6 is reported to be significantly faster. According to Sun, “existing applications will run faster than ever before on the new Java SE 6 release”.
