Return of Java
The article refernced here is wierd:Slashdot | The "Return" of Java Discussed
Slashdot asks whether Java has been anywhere, but I wonder what makes us think it is getting renwed attention. The article cites:
- Jon Schwartz of Sun saying Java helps keep the cost of substitution low: cost of substitution is just part of the costs, and anyway you can only substitute vanilla installs - must Java apps sit on app servers and you certainly can't easily substitute those
- VCs think games can be written in it
I'm convinced !!
Personally I think the whole Prog Language game is more wide open than it has ever been.
