Don't forget enums for Java.  I know Java 1.5 has generics and enums, but
that is not for J2EE yet.

I would add to the list of over `Java' features:

	support for structs as well as classes.

And somewhere else:

	Generic types are part of the instruction set in 2.0,
	which improves performance of generic types as it 
	allows types to be JITed specifically for the arguments.
