SuperString Theory

So you think you know all there is to know about using Strings in Java. Come to this session and find out that there is a lot more than meets the eye. We'll go into the common pitfalls related to using Strings. We'll dive into performance aspects of Strings, and we'll talk about the new features that J2SE 1.4 has in store for us. Attending this session should be mandatory for everyone who wants to use Strings in their Java programs.

Java.NIO – As in New Improved Optimized

Have you ever been jealous of C programmers who are able to go "down to the metal" and get screaming I/O performance in their applications? Be jealous no more. Sun's J2SE 1.4 has a complete set of new I/O classes that give you the same power. This session will show you how to use these new java.nio classes in practice. We'll build an application that will have performance close to what is possible with native calls. We'll also apply the new character set classes and compare them with the old ones. No API overviews, just straightforward Java code.
