Hi Herb,

Please could you point out the main differences between Version 5 and Version 6 of the JDK? I am not sure if it is neccessary to change to the newer version.

Especially: do I have to change my older projects to the new version and inn howfar do I have to alter my code then?

Thanks,
Rob

(Since you directed this towards Herb, I hope you don't mind my replying !)

You can have a look at the features of Java 6 -

and "What's New" -

I don't think you'd need to make any code changes, though ..
