Java Collection Framework - Whats new in Java 5 (and 6).

With Java 5, Collection framework got some new additions. Apart from Language defining Generics, Auto Boxing, and the all hailed new for loop (These are detailed here, here and here) - This version of java introduced the not-so-discussed new interfaces. Check them, They may save a day at work next time :)

On an birds view, These are going to be useful - in my vision - for those multi threaded applications and frameworks. The new interfaces are - Queue, BlockingQueue, ConcurrentMap (note ConcurrentMap is in java.util.concurrent). I will not go into details of these as it can be read here

And look ahead.. There are some more changes coming in 6, with more emphasis on blocking, support for concurrent package, and navigability . Where is it going? research tomorrow.

Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…
