* Client-Side Improvements in Java 6 and Java 7: This article discusses the improvements to the client and desktop parts of Java SE 6 and Java SE 7, including the new applet plug-in, the Java Deployment Toolkit, shaped and translucent windows, heavyweight-lightweight mixing, and Java Web Start.

* Unit and Functional Testing in Android: An article providing hands-on examples on how to implement unit and functional testing in Android. The author starts by giving an example of a typical unit test scenario and then he adapts it to run as an Android test.
