Sun previews next version of Java

'Mustang' release to feature Web services, performance, ease-of-development

Sun Microsystems has posted a prerelease, "snapshot" version of Java 2 Standard Edition 6.0, code-named Mustang, which represents the next generation of the Java platform

Accessible at https://j2se.dev.java.net/, the snapshot is an early version of the code for developer perusal and includes the latest features and fixes to the platform.

Toward the end of the development cycle for J2SE 5.0, Sun made available to the public several "snapshot" releases of the weekly binary JDK builds. These snapshots allowed developers access to the latest fixes and changes made to J2SE 5.0 after the public Beta release, but before the final General Availability release. Response from the developer community was tremendous.

Building on that enthusiasm, Sun is expanding the snapshot concept for the next major J2SE release, code named "Mustang." Snapshot releases will be available much sooner in the development cycle. Doing so will afford developers the earliest, most comprehensive access to date of the next major J2SE release.

Some things to note:

  • These releases are only lightly tested before being made available, so there is relatively more risk of something being seriously wrong.
  • You might find enhancements and changes vary from snapshot to snapshot as the development cycle progresses. Features and functions in these snapshots are not necessarily committed to the final product.
  • Only the JDK binary and source bundles are provided.
  • Documentation is very limited.
  • If you're risk averse or inexperienced, snapshot releases should probably be avoided. Sun recommends waiting for a beta release or later.
