There are some real nice statements I found in the article named “Java platform roundtable, Spring 2010”:
A typical Java Web app uses 15 or 20 MB of frameworks before you can even start writing code! Getting started with this mess of stuff is daunting to me, and I have a decade of Java development experience.
I think the entire process around JSR 294, 277, and Project Jigsaw has been a mess from the beginning. The people involved are universally smart and well-intentioned, yet I have little hope that the final outcome will be something that I want to use.
Spring will become the platform for doing cloud development, and incidentally continue to support the enterprise development it’s been supporting up until now.
Here the topics covered:
- Oracle and Java technology
- Java 7: Closures and concurrency
- Project Jigsaw
- Java and the multi-language VM
- What’s next for Spring?
- OpenJDK and Apache Harmony
- Cloud computing
- Java technology in new industries
- Open source: Where’s the money?
