What's New in JDK 1.5

This is a PowerPoint presentation (converted to HTML) that I created to document the new language features in JDK 1.5 (a.k.a., Tiger, JDK 5, and Java 5). The following topics are presented:
  • Covariant return types
  • Generics
  • Enumerated types (enum)
  • Autoboxing
  • Enhanced for loop
  • Variable arguments
  • Annotations
  • Static imports
  • New classes
