James Gosling praises Oracle's Java technology updates

,----[ Quote ]
| Although Java founder James Gosling has left 
| Oracle apparently under less-than-cordial 
| circumstances, he still can be found 
| championing Java technologies now sponsored 
| by Oracle.



Why Java could thrive at Oracle

,----[ Quote ]
| While there is no reason for Oracle to upset
| the Java community at this point, I highly
| doubt the company will continue with certain
| projects that are either direct open-source
| competition, or that require too much
| additional effort to be worth it for Oracle to
| continue.


Java vs. C++: The Performance Showdown

,----[ Quote ]
| Since the early days of the Java programming
| language, some have argued that Java's being an
| interpreted language has made it inferior to the
| likes of C and C++ in terms of performance. Of
| course, C++ devotees would never, ever even
| consider Java a âproperâ language, while the
| Java crowd always throws âwrite once, run
| everywhereâ in the faces of the C++ programmers.


Java vs. .Net: Java programmers gain the edge

,----[ Quote ]
| The flexibility that Java brings through its
| open source framework, has made it more
| popular. .NET in its complete form can only be
| installed on computers running a Microsoft
| Windows operating system, whereas Java can be
| installed on computers running any operating
| systems such as Linux, Solaris, Mac OS or
| Windows.

,----[ Quote ]
| Sun appears to have timed the release of
| three updated versions of its Java
| enterprise software products to coincide
| with a closed-door hearing in Europe about
| Oracle's planned takeover. Could be the
| company wants to send regulators a message
| that it's still viable and still
| innovating. It's also quite likely that
| Sun is seeking to reassure customers, who
| are no doubt becoming restless.

,----[ Quote ]
