Firs of all XML serialization should be optional but not mandatory. Because owerhead is too high and XML advantages you are described is not always useful. I would say, that in most cases binary representation is more convenient. Especially for object machalling.

Now about File. I agree that file should be improved, but disagree about the way. File should represent some object on a virtual file system, and that VFS should allows to plug in custom FS, sucha s FTP, CVS, WebDAV and so on. Now we have to alternatives to access files - URLConnection and File. So, they should be merged and should allow more features and convenience.

    I agree with you in the File section. It will be a lot easier to programming and to extend capabilities of java if the classes have some standard access.

    I also like that the capability of handle several FS like FTP or WebDAV appears on Java 3. But I think that a VFS framework will be create this FS access a lot prettier.

    I will include these clases in some javax extension to simplify the language.
