[News] Free Software Builds Rich Clients

Developing Rich Client Applications Using Swing - II

| NetBeans 6.x
| NetBeans is an open source IDE that can be used to develop both open source 
| and commercial applications. As with Eclipse, there exists a portal dedicated 
| to plug-ins that extend the NetBeans base platform.  
| [...]
| Anyway, it's possible to group these IDEs in categories by distinguishing 
| between open source products (or near open source, i.e., low licence costs) 
| and commercial products. An organization should ask oneself why choose a 
| commercial solution if the same features are available in open source 
| solutions too: what added value does a commercial IDE provide? Greater 
| productivity? Greater support or documentation? Superior development tools?     



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)
