Now that jdk 1.6 is finally out, I think it´s a good time to have a closer look at jdk 1.5. Of course I read that they included Doug Lea´s concurrency utils, but I never got around actually browsing the documentation. I should have done this earlier. It´s good loads of useful abstractions, like blocking queues and semaphores.

    As a dillettante in programming: Why have a closer look at version 1.5 when version 1.6 comes out? My naivity would prompt me to have that look when version *1.5* comes out.
