Security for Java Programmers

One of the most significant aspects of Java programming is that it creates applications that have extraordinary relevance to computer security. Few UNIX administrators would be prepared to allow millions of users to execute programs as root (the administrative superuser) on their system, yet this level of potentially total power is what every user cedes when they point their browser at a URL containing some form of Java executable. Because of this, knowledge of computer security is becoming a requirement for Java programmers, and Java developers are being held accountable for the security implications of their code. Java experts who can speak authoritatively on security issues will be in greater demand. This short series of articles won't dwell on the relative advantage or disadvantage of Java as a programming language, although it assumes that Java will be increas... (more)

i-Technology Predictions for 2007: Where's It All Headed?

At the end of each year, when SYS-CON informally polls its globe-girdling network of software developers, industry executives, commentators, investors, writers, and editors, our question is always the same: where's the industry going next year? Every time, the answers are surprisingly different from the year before, and of course throw light not just on where the industry is going but also how it's going to get there, why, because of who, within what kind of time-scale - all that good stuff.

NetBeans Day Wrap-up

Tons of interesting stuff came from todays NetBeans shindig. I am impressed with the progress they have made in just a year. The tool set is tons better and seems to be making significant progress on the way to being a first class player. Yet another reason to be glad for Eclipse. The Eclipse team has really forced the issue to make NetBeans better. One of my favorite quotes last year from a NetBeans/Swing guy was that they didn't realize how important native look and feel was to developers (and ultimately users). Duh! They have a much better story for that now and espically on the performance side of things. It runs fast (esp on my shiny new 17" MacBook Pro:). Ok so back to todays content. Started with some history and stuff and a big thank you to the folks that stuck with the NB platform through some lean years. A little chest thumping too with their success. From... (more)
