Java EE 5 and GlassFish pages at Java.Sun.Com

Java EE 5 is getting closer...
as you remember, in June of this year we went through a
"http://weblogs.java.net/blog/kgh/archive/2005/06/goodbye_j2se_he_1.html">name change
for the platforms including emphasizing "Java", dropping the "2",
and moving from things like "5.0" to "5". I think that, overall, the changes are for the better, but they will certainly
confuse people for a bit. It was extra confusing that there was not much
content under the new name at Java.Sun.Com; a quick search
would most likely get you on the
J2EE 1.4
pages, and that was about it.

Things are beginning to improve.
Java.Sun.Com just added some pages on Java EE 5.
The content is a bit limited but at least there is a list of
all the
technologies.
I'm sure that more content will be delivered leading up to
JavaOne 06 (this year in May, from the 16th to the 19th!).

The other pages that were added are pages for the
GlassFish Community
which is developing the reference implementation for Java EE 5.
We know from experience that having early access to the implementations is
key to get high quality feedback on the specs,
so, go grab a
download a build and a spec
and kick the tires.
