Hi gudii9,

There are no demerits in java 1.5 when you compare 1.4, it offers more enhanced feature for the developer for comfortable usage of java api for the efficient programming.

It offers many features like generics, Autoboxing, StringBuilder, ProcessBuilder, enum, annotations. Enhanced for loop and enhanced collections.

I can say 1.5 provides the comfort programming for developer to write the efficient programs compared to 1.4.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
