J2SE 1.5 mother lode

While doing my standard early morning web-walk I stumbled on a mother lode of J2SE 1.5 information. JDiff isn’t necessarily 1.5 specific, but it allows you to see all changes that occurred in the API. JDiff is one of those thing you wish you stumbled on years ago. While perusing the diff on java.lang.Thread I noticed that setUncaughtExceptionHandler() and setDefaultUncaughtExceptionHandler() have been added. If you’ve ever used java.lang.ThreadGroups uncaughtException() then this addition to Thread will be old hat. Regardless, this is a welcomed change. Javalobby has a decent write up on these two new methods.
