I just bought a test for SCJP Java 5 [shudder]. I have some old Java programming and a recent SL-275 under my belt. I talked to the instructor
and one of the 1.4 test writers after class and they said the Java 5 test
was a killer. Trying to enhance the value of Java 5 cert in the industry.

My question was, Is the industry aware of this? I think the answer was, "eventually". I consider their pessimism helpful though. I'm

Second guessing the compiler, I would say that there are two unique
m1() methods that apply to two of the method calls. Auto boxing and
unboxing is a Java 5 goodie that would work, but which method would be
used? When both work, it is ambiguous. Pretty smart compiler, I think.
