I'm working from memory, but my recollection is that it prints an 
exception in the IE Java console (== tech support call) regardless of 
whether you catch it or not.

There are a couple of places where the change seems to make little 
sense except for consistency, for example, Vector->ArrayList in 

Looking through the patch, the following occurs to me.  You've already 
created the AggregateFactory class, would it be possible to create:

interface MapInterface {



interface ListInterface {


(OR whatever).   Then return a concrete implementation from 
AggregateFactory.  In 1.1 the implementation is a trivial subclass of a 
Hashtable and Vector.  In Java2, Map and List.  Then the 
AggregateFactory could be switched to change implementations.

I don't, however, have a good suggestion for Iterators and Enumerations.
