As I'm sure you've all seen, Java EE 6 has gone final. You can now download the Final Release of the Contexts and Dependency Injection, Bean Validation, Java Persistence API 2 and Java Servlet 3 specifications from, and read the linked javadoc for the entire platform. It's also a good chance to check out the Java API for RESTful Web Services specification, which now includes CDI integration, if you havn't already.

Sun have also published a three-part overview of the new platform and the Java EE 6 tutorial and sample applications.

It's just fantastic to finally see the fruits of all that work :-)
