Sun's new Java site live!

Sun's new Java site is live. Actually, it's still java.sun.com. However, java.sun.com has been upgraded substantially, including the following:

  • Better left-hand side (LHS) navigation

  • Improved overall navigation

  • An A-Z Index of all Java terms -- Great for those new to Java!

  • Sample Code Repositories for all the major Java API -- Great resource for developers who need solutions and fast!

  • Access to other Java API and code through docs on site

  • Focus is on Java as a technology, not a product

  • Improved Java forums for community dialog and code exchange

  • Java search engine using Google

  • Nice look


This new upgrade debuted online in early July. So, keep in mind that there may still be some bugs as well as additional new features pending.



However, since I know some of the people over there, I would be happy to pass along any advice, issues, suggestions and more you have for java.sun.com.



Share your thoughts about the new and improved java.sun.com. Thanks.

Yeah for new design!
This isn't to say that I don't like applets, they have their place, but THANK GOD Sun got rid of the applets off their home page!

Where's the A-Z index?
A link to it is not on the front page.
