The desktop Java client group at Sun is working on some great features and
functionality in the next release of Java (code named Mustang); we thought it
might be useful to detail some of the highlights here. Where possible, we will
add pointers to additional information (such as Bug IDs or other articles) and
we will also give information on the Mustang build that each item is integrated
into, as we proceed in development. And with the Mustang release, this is more
than just talk; you can go download the latest bits anytime you want at
Note that we are attempting to be as open and honest as possible here; we are
telling you the things that we would like to do in Mustang; it is
entirely possible that some of these items may not make it into the release for
one reason or another. Mustang is, after all, very much mid-development right
now. Also, any API additions or other enhancements to the J2SE platform
specification are subject to review and approval by the
JSR 270 Expert
Group. But beyond these caveats, this list should contain, at any given
time, the features that we are currently hoping to deliver in Mustang.
Note too that this is not an exhaustive list of everything we are working on
in the client group; these are just the larger, more visible, more called-for,
or more exciting features that we have on our plate.
Finally, we encourage you to go looking for more information on
java.sun.com. In particular,
our bug reports tend to contain our latest thinking about bugs, features, and
fixes. For items below that contain bug IDs, click on the links or search the
for that bug ID to read more about that feature.
