by earl, 5162 days agogpoul poked a bit thru the JavaOne session slides and came up with quite a bit of interesting stuff. especially the sessions on the new
"Evolving the Java Language" (TS-7955) gives an overview of how Java the language is going to develop. all the interesting things (well, multiple dispatch and method references/closures) are basically a no-no ;) instead XML integration at the language (syntactic) level is a major topic, current "brainstorming" is basically sexprs with # as lexical marker for XML node names:
elsewhere, the JVM instruction set may be extended to better support "dynamic" languages. hopefully they'll add a tail call instruction/hint as well ;)
i can't find any way to place direct links to the session slides - if anyone else finds out: drop a note, please.
