Hey, Adam! Look! They're going to dumb down Java! Bet you didn't
think that was possible!

Sun Brewing Simpler Java
[ Actually, the title is misleading. Looks like they're not
writing a simpler subset of Java, but rather just developing
a VB-like interface for programming in it. ]
"In a move designed to attract more developers to its vision of Web
services and application development, Sun Microsystems Inc. is
developing enhancements to the Java language that provide a more
Visual Basic-like experience.
"The goal will crystallize in June at the company's JavaOne conference
with the likely announcement of a Java-based tool that competes with
Microsoft Corp.'s Visual Basic. The goal is to make it easier for
developers to create applications and add business processes with
Java, Sun officials in Santa Clara, Calif., said."
