msg Applied Technology Research

Some company news. Sorry for that in advance ;)
For the last years my whole department almost worked in silence. We were working for our internal customers. Since a few days, this changed slightly. We now have our own part of the msg group website (only german up to now) and this is not only a change on the web but also in our duties. Beside the challenging and satisfying support for the different industries within the msg group, we can now directly support external customers on selected problems, too. So, get in contact with my employer if you are interested. Hope, you enjoy the new department name as much as I do:
msg Applied Technology Research (XT).

Gosling: What's Good for Google May Not Be Good for Java

Have you read this?

Whats Good for Google May Not be Good for Java


In a wide-ranging discussion with eWEEK, Java creator James Gosling sheds light on where he sees innovation in Java, the future of the platform, the legacy of Sun and the new Java Store, among a variety of other topics. In what Sun said was his only formal interview at what could have been the last JavaOne conference, Gosling sat down with eWEEK Senior Editor Darryl K. Taft to engage in an annual tete a tete, which this time proved to be both enlightening and emotional. In this segment, Part 1 of the two-part Q&A, Gosling takes Google to task, talks up the Java Store, and discusses OSGi and more.


And the corresponding open-letter from Peter Kriens, OSGi-Evangelist?
hi were osgi we mean no harm


We're OSGi. We mean no harm

The evolution of the Java language is essentially over

One of my favourite comments on this years JavaOne comes from Cay Horstmann. He is the author of Core Java (Sun Microsystems Press 1996-2004), Enterprise Java for Elvis (Sun Microsystems Press, to appear), and co-author of Core JSF (Sun Microsystems Press 2004)an a professor of computer science at San Jose State University. He is a computer science series editor at Prentice-Hall and a frequent speaker at computer industry conferences. For four years, Cay was VP and CTO of an Internet startup that went from 3 people in a tiny office to a public company.


The evolution of the Java language is essentially over. There may be a few minor tweaks on the way, but if you are pining for closures, properties, or metaclasses, look elsewhere. Scala is a great choice today, and Groovy could be good if they'd just start writing a language spec. (Cay Horstmann)
