One year after I look away from Java World
December 26, 2008 § Leave a comment
A lot of interesting projects are happening in Java world.
First, is the highly celebrated Hadoop. For those who don’t know it’s open source distributed file system and map-reduce implementation.
Scripting languages such as Groovy, Jython, and JRuby are also gaining more popularity. Although, it’s kind of hard to google real world usage of these scripting languages.
There is also a simpler open source web server project called Simple. For those who build web application using PHP, Ruby or Python, Simple makes sense immediately. It integrates well with Velocity Templating Engine, a powerful and yet POJO based system.
All these projects use java in a different manner than what you would expect in Enterprise environment, it’s exciting.
