Where can I find a specification of the Java generics language features?

SPECIFICATION: http://jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/review/jsr014/

The public review draft of the Java Generics specification has been put together by the JSR014 specification group . Sadly, it's outdated (August 2001) and no revision has been published here.  Later versions of the specification were available as part of the prototype releases of the compiler.  However, there is no final release of the specification. 

SPECIFICATION: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/

The final specification is part of the 3 rd edition of the Java Language Specification (JLS 3), which has been published in April 2005 and is available at the URL above.
