[News] Java Applications for GNU/Linux Show Great Promose

Hash: SHA1

Don't Forsake These Java Apps, Linux Users

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the years, the value of Java has been replaced by more emphasis on Flash 
| and Ajax on the web front. But what about Linux users who need applications 
| that can deal with changes in the back-end to desktop environments, amongst 
| other changes? I happen to believe that to some extent, Java can be a really 
| beneficial thing to consider for the desktop. Here are my favorite Java apps 
| in no uncertain order.     


The long road to a working Cheese

| Google Summer of Code project entitled Photobooth-like application for the 
| GNOME-Desktop. (See this GNOME Journal interview with Daniel Siegel). Several 
| additional GSoC projects involved Cheese, these include Cheese integration 
| into Gnome with student Felix Kaser and mentor Daniel Siegel and Extend 
| Cheese with OpenGL effects with student Filippo Argiolas and mentor Daniel 
| Siegel.     



Study: Java still top programming language

,----[ Quote ]
| Java has its detractors, but according to a recent reading of the Tiobe
| Programming Community Index, it's still the dominant programming language,
| with little change in its overall popularity since August 2007. Runners up?
| C, (Visual) Basic, C++, and PHP.


Sun Provides 64-bit Java Plug-In For Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| After years of complaints by its users, last month Adobe released 64-bit
| Flash for Linux. Now this month Sun Microsystems has come to the table with a
| Java plug-in that is compatible with 64-bit web browsers.


Java and Linux - an open marriage in search of success

,----[ Quote ]
| That other pillar of open source, and creator of the GNU Project Richard
| Stallman, meanwhile, became one of Java's loudest opponents - sternly
| advising people not to install the closed-source evil that was Java, and
| giving Java as a dire example of corporate lock-in.
| Two years later Sun silenced the the baying crowd with OpenJDK - an
| open-source project based on Sun's closed-JDK codebase.
| Sun also released Java Standard Edition (Java SE) for the desktop, Java
| Mobile Edition (Java ME) for mobile devices and Glassfish - Sun's
| implementation of Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) - under GNU General
| Public License v2 (GPLv2). Sun said GPLv2 would achieve the objectives
| of "driving more volume and adoption for Java and maintaining the 'write once
| run anywhere compatibility' promise."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
