Primitive types and objects

The Fishbowl's Java Peeves.

I totally agree with, uh, whatever The Fishbowl's author's name is on the primitive types and objects issue. This is being fixed in Python. I can't see Java changing so fundamentally in the near term, though.

Exceptions haven't caused me too much of a problem, but I can see his or her point. Still, it's just another one of those lots-of-boilerplate things that irritate me about Java.

Closures? Hmmm, well, useful at times, but you'd get most of the same benefit if methods were to be first class objects.

Also recently at The Fishbowl: The StringBuffer Myth and Six Rules of Unit Testing. Both worth a read.
