Hey! I was just wondering if there is any difference in speed if one does, for example:
Iterator it = list.iterator();
while (it.hasNext()) {
    Object o = it.next();
}
compared to
Iterator it = list.iterator();
Object o;
while (it.hasNext()) {
    o = it.next();
}

Probably not. I bet those guys at Sun optimized their compiler well enough to fix your bad code. Look for the big bottlenecks in your application, not these micro-optimizations.

Thanks!

Yes, that's what I would bet too, but I wanted to make sure.

And yes, the for-each loop in definatly nicer but I just wanted an example. Thanks again!
