Lately, I'm finding interesting documentation of how things work "under the hood" -- for example, Adam Bien's description of the address space utilized by JavaFX, in his interview with Janice Heiss, which I wrote about yesterday. If you're in a position like mine, where your job is to survey the breadth of what's happening in the Java/JDK world, you can end up having a somewhat superficial awareness of a great many technologies, knowing the most publicized facts, but not really understanding how the technology works on the inside, how all those great publicized capabilities were actually implemented at the code level. Yet, I've spent three decades working in that interior, low-level coding, development realm. So, I find knowing just the shiny exterior facts such as appear in announcements of new releases frustrating at times. I find myself wanting to grab some code and run with it, make some demo apps, and see what it's really like to work with these new technologies.
