Swapping Java out
Not the BEA kind of swap :-)
"A friend of mine told me tonight that his boss is putting the axe in Java at his workplace. This is explained by the very low productivity of Java."
So my friend asked me what I would recommend. Since they were doing web-based stuff with Java, I suggested that they look into Ruby on Rails and/or LAMP. I also mentioned that Smalltalk would be a good choice, because they could get commercial support from Cincom.
