I have been coming across a lot of articles recently and there seems to be a lot of talk about JDK1.4. What really are the advantages of JDK1.4 and how is it better than 1.3

There isn't any one thing about JDK 1.4 that constitutes an advantage; most of the changes are just new features that are very useful.
That said, I would say that the New I/O (nio) system, in the java.nio.* packages, are probably the most significant change. They are a completely new way of doing I/O, although they are well integrated with the original (java.io.*) method.
