Some of you may have seen the article by Eric Wilson in Australian IT, entitled J2EE, .NET in slugfest
Good sensational headline.
I was even quoted in the article, which is nice.
What I didn’t understand was Eric’s point.
He quoted some data from an “unpublished Gartner survey”, which states
“of the 107 companies questioned, …… a whopping 71 per cent say they use, or plan to use, Microsoft’s Visual Studio .NET programming environment”.
Then we have the following statement from a SUN Spokesperson –
Then Eric has a quote from a “Former J2EE developer” who says
“relying on open source frameworks makes J2EE programmers unproductive, with up to 20 frameworks downloaded from the internet into each project.”
The article goes on with some comments by folks from both sides of the fence, as well as more comment from Gartner’s unpublished report, but then it ended kinda abruptly. As I mentioned before I don’t get the conclusion. Where’s the promised slugfest? What was Eric trying to say?
