Question: The beta release of J2SE 1.5 is scheduled for late 2003. I have heard that there will be some changes in a code writing process that will make our life easier...

Answer: Yes, indeed. The improvements to J2SE being developed in project "Tiger" are intended to make programs clearer, shorter, safer, and easier to develop, without sacrificing compatibility. Java 1.5 will shift the responsibility for writing the boilerplate code from the programmer to the compiler...
Example:

Instead of writing
String title = ((String) words.get(i)).toUppercase();

you will do like this:

String title = words.get(i).toUppercase();
and it will decrease the number of compile errors. Compiler will try to cast to String without saying it explicitly.

More about all coming changes you can read in this excellent article:
