Posted by jonbruce on October 1, 2004 at 3:28 PM PDT

Today the culmination of nearly 3 years of work bore fruit with the release of J2SE 5.0 GA, our production ready release of the next generation Java platform.
Graham Hamilton
announced the GA release in his blog early this morning.

Readers of my blog have seen me talk about JDBC RowSet Implementations in my previous blog entries, so I won't delve into technical details here. The main announcement today is that everything you used before, our JDBC RowSet Tutorial provided as a co-bundle of the Java Web Services Pack 1.4, and to all our customers who have provided us with excellent feedback through out the life of JSR-114, you can now find this in the Java platform.

The JSR-114 specification team, made up of industry experts from Oracle, BEA, IBM, DataDirect Technologies and many others all participated in the specification effort deserve our thanks for their tireless efforts by providing feedback to the specification to make a significant contribution to the platform. The Sun team which included both the specification, implementation and TCK team are equally proud to see efforts our now forming an integral part of the platform! Check out these packages...

... and of course we have provided a set of reference implementations that are ready use and included in the platform located in accessible in the com.sun.rowset packages.

You can still grab a copy of our JDBC RowSet Tutorial written by long time JDBC author, Maydene Fisher and as always we want your feedback. You can email jsr-114-comments@jcp.org, post a question on the JDBC Forum or just post a comment below.
