Java Rocks! - J2EE 1.4 Showcased in San Francisco

Java Rocks! - J2EE 1.4 Showcased in San Francisco

It's only been released since November 2003. Nonetheless, according to Sun, it has already "spawned five compatible products in only six months and 15 more have confirmed development schedules."

"It" of course is J2EE 1.4 - the latest version of the specification that now boasts 35 OEMs on board and over four million downloads of its SDK.

To an audience that included Marc Fleury, George Paolini, Bob Sutor and assorted Java influentials, Mark Bauhaus, vice president of Java Web Services for Sun Microsystems, was in no doubt about the strength of Java. "J2EE is the leading enterprise platform in the world today, with the proven security, reliability and standards-based innovation to deliver Web services and service oriented architecture," he said. "The rich history of the Java platform can be summarized in two words: leadership and innovation," he continued. Then he added:

"All the vendors here today continue to represent leadership and innovation with their contributions to the Java platform - from the first Java Developer Kit to J2EE 1.4, the gold standard for Web service platform development and deployment."

Borland's Paolini - vice president and general manager of developer tools - observed: "J2EE 1.4 also promises to move the industry closer to true J2EE platform independence and further away from fragmentation."

Borland, he pointed out, has taken the lead on J2EE Web services development with Borland JBuilder "and as a fierce proponent of flexibility and choice; we will continue our market leading tradition of easing user adoption of new standards without adding proprietary layers."

JBoss's Fleury was equally bullish about Java:

"JBoss and Sun have been working together for several months on many fronts to advance J2EE's prominence in the market. Our support for the kick-off of J2EE 1.4 is just the most recent initiative to unfold between the two companies. Both Java developers and enterprise users stand to benefit greatly from the strong commitment we both share to simplifying the Java language. Sun also backs JBoss' drive to deliver the first open source J2EE-compatible application server, which will propel Java deeper into enterprise environments."

Showcased at the presentation were the six companies who to date have 1.4-compliant app severs - Borland, BEA, IBM , Oracle, Pramati, and Trifork - and Sun also used the ocasion to announce the latest J2EE 1.4 licensee, Shenzhen Kingdee Middleware Co., Ltd. (Kingdee Middleware) of the People's Republic of China.

The typical scripting shop has a lot of cheap students that write a lot of unmaintainable, low quality scripts. They run into big problems when something non-supported-by-script has to be done.

Now where does that come from, I think the story should be viewed in perspective, J2EE1.4 is meant for enterprise applications based on distributed, transactional components, it can be argued that there are some cases where people have used J2EE just for the heck of it and those cases might be implemented as a scripting solution using any of the popular scripting languages, however your grudge against H1B-L1 folks is a pretty irrational reason to give crap to J2ee.

The poster above doesn't know what he is talking about. Java is a great system for developing platform-independent applications. The API is very robust and _very_ well documented. Application development time is very low in comparison to C++ for example. There is certainly a place for Java and a place for scripting languages. There is no reason that Java code should be 'unmaintainable' as this poster claims. Some people seem to dislike Java though they don't really know much of anything about it. I can name many examples of applications that are much more suited to Java than any of the scripting languages this dolt has mentioned. E-mail me if you want me to elaborate.

From what I''ve seen, the typical J2EE shop
has a lot of H-1b/L-1 workers writing code that could be written by 1/3 as many people in 1/3 as many lines using a decent scripting language(Python, Perl, PHP). The risks associated with having an unmaintainable code base typical in Java shops are enormous--as are risks associated with tthe business practices of these organizations.

A service mesh like Istio addr...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
