  • Sun shines dimly in Big Blue’s shadow |Fatal Exception | Neil McAllister | InfoWorld – As Rich Green says, the key will be not just delivering products and professional services, but doing so with better ROI than anyone else. Sun needs to convince its customers not merely that it offers an impressive product and service portfolio, but that it can be as valuable a partner as IBM. Until it can do that, Sun is going to have a hard time crawling out from under Big Blue's shadow.

  • My Top List of Java Tools | Javalobby – Lack of imagination is one of our worst sins as software developers. We do the same things over and over again, but we rarely modify our ways: me at least.

  • Joe on Computing : A maze of twisty little Java web service standards, all alike – It’s almost impossible to keep up with all the fractal-like Java standards related to web services. As fast as each can be learned, Sun invents another, and a dozen open source implementations appear. For my own sanity I tried to create a rough map of some of them. I tried to avoid making recommendations; my main objective was to sketch out how they fit together. I also focused on the open source options; there are many good commercial implementations of all of these too.
