This article has a section on 'editions' (SE, ME, etc). But nothing on the differences between versions. Java 1.7 (and 1.8, though not yet finalized) is in some ways quite a different languages from 1.0. Does anyone think there ought to be a 'Versions' section with brief notes on the main changes (or perhaps just the language changes) in each version? These could include links to information on the relevant topic elsewhere on WP.
This article should have a section, Fake Java update and under it, it should mention a bit of stuff about it and have a link to the article Java update virus and once that article becomes much bigger, it should say at the top Main article: Java update virus.

There is a banner on the section that is essentially an introductory Java tutorial saying that the content should be revised or moved somewhere else. There is already a very nice Java tutorial on Wikibooks, so I think this section should be removed entirely. Does anyone else agree?
The following silly text is in its pretty little box in the article:
This article contains instructions, advice, or how-to content. The purpose of Wikipedia is to present facts, not to train. Please help improve this article either by rewriting the how-to content or by moving it to Wikiversity, Wikibooks or Wikivoyage (January 2012)
Could we have a senior editor rein all these little jerks in, maybe?
I've read many times that Java HotSpot JIT can optimize code to the point of being faster than static native code compiled with a good C/C++ compiler. At the great expense of 10x memory use and the time taken to generate said code. Maybe the article should reflect this. Bmg300 (talk) 08:18, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
