Popular JAVA

Interesting article to read....
I agree with the following points from that article..

1)Most developers might spend more time writing Java code than they spend with their family and friends
2)This is part of the Java paradox, it takes all of about 10 minutes to setup a Ruby on Rails application or to deploy a PHP based forum or Blog on top of Linux and MySQL, but this still didn't sway the devoted Java users
3)A Java developer has to study with the rigor of a Nasa physicist to keep up with everything Java related.
4)let us say I need to write a sophisticated web application framework that has 1000 dynamic webpages and connects to an Oracle database with 50 billion rows. Will python be productive then?

Hi JAVA --> Many More Returns of the Day

JAVA's 10th year celebration is going on. So this is my celebration post ..

you may be bit bored reading evolution of java and history of java from so many sites or books. This link will give u something different view about "The evolution of the"....After December 5,2003, again changed its go and check

On May 23, 1995, John Gage, director of the Science Office for Sun Microsystems, and Marc Andreessen, cofounder and executive vice president at Netscape, stepped onto a stage and announced to the SunWorldTM audience that JavaTM technology was real, it was official, and it was going to be incorporated into Netscape NavigatorTM, the world's portal to the Internet.

At that time, the entire Java technology team, not yet a division, numbered less than 30 people. It was the original members of this small group who created and nurtured a technology that would change the computing world.JAVA TECHNOLOGY: THE EARLY YEARS

And interesting interview with " The Man Who Brewed Up Java" ....
Some excerpts from that interview..

Q: Are Java's best days behind or still ahead?
A: It's a bit of both. It has become very mature in a number of areas. But in a number of areas, it's just beginning, like in the embedded world and in cell phones.

Q: Where is Java heading in the future?
A: The thing I've been most involved with is the embedded world. People are embedding Java into really interesting devices. These folks tend to move very, very slowly -- people who do avionics or automotive control systems or heating control systems. But there's a lot of interesting work being done.

There are diagnostics systems for gas stations or locomotives, so you can tune a locomotive while [it's] in motion. You might have a locomotive hurtling down the tracks, but you can't have the world's best locomotive mechanic on every train. But if the train can sense something is funny and cause a screen to pop up on that mechanic's desk, he can do some tuning and maintenance remotely.

And there are some [experiments] in the automotive world that are pretty entertaining. To be able to pull out your cell phone and say, "Please lock yourself," that'd be pretty neat.More...

Gosling takes pride in the fact that Java has worked well enough for many developers to simply take it for granted at this point. He twice cited the example of developers who build Java apps on Mac OS X and then deploy them on Windows without even testing, because they just assume it will work

checkout the following links I collected over couple of days regarding this java celebration feast...

3) Java's 10th B-day: Jonathan Schwartz and the cake
4) interview with mr.gosling

10) looks like a hollywood website
11) Sun brings true interactivity to the world wide web
12) Mr.Gosling response to HARMONY
13) From Ludovic Champenois's Blog,
It's good to see there is some internet memory under Imagine, you can still download the JDK 1.1.6 for Windows 95/NT4.0 - 8,230,260 bytes. What a good deal...

If you are not a java programmer or the guy who hates java, then this link would be nice to visit...i want to see little happiness in their faces also for this great occasion....:-)

Everybody refreshing their java skills with jdk1.5(TIGER). In our busy schedule(!!!), finding a good book(think about its size!!!) and spend time in that is bit difficult. so checkout the below link. This page contains core java concepts and an example programs with an additional information about java 5.

Real Programmer (!)

the Real Men were the ones who understood computer programming, and the Quiche Eaters were the ones who didn't
  • No Real Programmer works 9 to 5. (Unless it's the ones at night.)
  • Real Programmers don't wear neckties.
  • Real Programmers don't wear high heeled shoes.
  • Real Programmers arrive at work in time for lunch.
  • A Real Programmer might or might not know his wife's name. He does, however, know the entire ASCII (or EBCDIC) code table.
  • Real Programmers don't know how to cook. Grocery stores aren't open at three in the morning. Real Programmers survive on Twinkies and coffee.

very old article..but interesting to read..

Breadth Vs Depth

What's the difference between a senior Java developer and a Java architect?

If you ask this question to me...I can simply say..
1) Java architect certificate is costlier than java developer certificate..So architects are big.
2) Architects may have more experience than developers.
3) Architects never write a code but developer should do.
4) You have to pay huge amount to architects compare to developers.
5) In a company, developers headcount always larger than architects.
and other blah..blah stuffs.

but if you see this article its not like that...checkout that..

Opensource Journey

I knew, certain companies have policies like not to use opensource softwares....Later they may change or the future will force that companies to change...but when reading this article i was amazed by the decision taken by the government...

"The Brazilian government will force public departments to migrate to open source software"

hmm.... interesting...
