This post is intended for those folks: have hope, there is truly useful stuff in Java 5. In this post, I will mention a couple of my favourites. These have been well-documented, and are not even the 'coolest' features, but my respect for them has been well-earned over the last few months.

Many people are on Java 1.4 due to legacy app servers. It is certainly not their fault, nor does the article imply that it is.

There are very few valid excuses for still using Java 1.4, a full two versions behind. In fact, Java 1.4 reaches its end of life in 23 days (October 30). The EOL transition period began in December 2006, so there's been plenty of time to prepare.
