“Is Java Finished?” By Vincent Ryan

Here are my takes from an article by Vincent Ryan called "Is Java Finished?"

  • Java's philosophy of development is to expose low-level system interfaces to give developers greater control.

  • Microsoft simplifies the development process; the developer has less control -- but the tools are easier to use.

  • In the Microsoft model, standards and portability are not important, he noted. That makes developing on .NET a high-risk strategy, because the developer is locked into Windows and Windows characteristics.

  • Will Java go away? Most unlikely, because developers who want cross-platform interoperability will take Java. No question about it!
