What's New in Java 1.5?
Sun has recently "upgraded" the Java language to include many new features such as Generics, Type-Safe Enumerations, Automatic Boxing and Unboxing, Annotations, For/In loops, and Static Imports. How will this affect the way you teach APCS? Immediately, it will have a minimal effect, but as you need to expand the scope of your APCS course to encompass the new features it might be difficult to find time. I'm going to discuss the current effect 1.5 has on APCS as well as possible future implications it may have on your course. for more detail read..http://www.cs.indiana.edu/classes/jett/sstamm/
