Following up from threads earlier this year,


I'm willing and interested to sponsor getting String.join functionality 
into JDK 7.

To address this particular bug, I think there should be new "join" 
methods on String as opposed to a general "joiner" class.  A more 
general class could be added later.

Remi, please point to a current draft of the specification and 
implementation for your change.

Kevin, I'm interested in hearing your comments on the API design.
