SYS-CON Media Readers Cast More Than 4,000 Votes In First Week Of Voting

More Than 50,000 Readers Expected To Define The "2005 Oscars Of The Software Industry"

This year it looks certain that a new participation record will be set, as more than 4,000 votes have already been recorded in just the first seven days of voting, and more than 50,000 SYS-CON Media readers are estimated to cast their votes in this year's Readers' Choice Awards. The winners of this years awards will be announced in November at Web Services Edge 2005 West - International Web Services Conference & Expo in San Francisco.

The list of companies heading the various polls reads like a "Who's Who" of the most active and enterprising players in the i-technology space - including all the industry's top software and hardware vendors, services providers, and technical publishers. Highlights after just one week's voting include:

2005 JDJ Readers' Choice Awards:

There are 26 categories in this year's JDJ awards. In the coveted "Best Java Application Server" category, the four front-runners that have emerged in the first week's voting are BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 (BEA Systems), IBM WebSphere Application Server (IBM), JBoss Application Server (JBoss Inc.), and Oracle Application Server 10g (Oracle).

In the "Best Java IDE" category, competition is equally intense, with the first week's voting putting Eclipse (Eclipse Foundation) in the lead at the moment, with IBM WebSphere Studio (IBM), IntelliJ IDEA (JetBrains), and Oracle JDeveloper (Oracle) all in the top four at present, too.

The "Best Wireless Application" race is currently being led by IBM WebSphere MQ Everyplace (IBM), ahead of RIM Blackberry Wireless Handheld (Research in Motion), while the "Most Innovative Java Product" category is at present being led by Eclipse (Eclipse Foundation), and the "Best Java Component" category by  Oracle ADF Business Components (Oracle).

With 23 different voting categories, the Web Services Journal/XML-Journal awards promise again to be a broad reflection of all that's good in the Web services space, with an incredibly close race going on after the first week's voting in for example the prestigious "Best Web Services IDE" category - where 8 different leading contenders are all neck and neck at the moment: IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer (IBM), Visual Basic.NET (Microsoft), BEA WebLogic Workshop (BEA), Altova xmlspy 2004 (Altova), NetBeans/Java Studio Enterprise (Sun), Borland JBuilder (Borland), Oracle JDeveloper 10g (Oracle), and Stylus Studio XML IDE (Stylus Studio).

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
