Gosling: "Netbeans 4.0 Rocks!"

Gosling: "Netbeans 4.0 Rocks!"

  • NetBeans Newsflash: NetBeans IDE 4.0 Beta 1 Announced

    "What got me excited this time," wrote James Gosling last night in his blog heralding the release last week of NetBeans 4.0, "isn't one of the new features (like Ant-based projects, JDK 5.0 support, J2ME support, refactoring or all the rest), it's one of the features that's been there for a while, I had just never tried it out."

    He was referring to the servlet development support in Netbeans.

    In his daily life, Gosling explains, he mostly writes client side code. "It's been a couple of years since I've needed to write a servlet."

    "Writing servlets is easy, but dealing with deployment can be rough. So I decided to try the servlet development support in NetBeans. Piece of cake! No writing deployment descriptors, no fighting with installing and configuring a server. Just run the wizard, type in the body of the servlet, and click run. Direct to having fun with the ImageIO libraries..."

    Praise from the co-creator of Java is praise indeed. The Netbeans beta1 is here.

    A couple other posters have the right attitude. Gosling works for Sun. This together with his lack of knowledge/interest/commentary of other IDE's make him less of an expert than most developers, who are (at minimum) trying to find a good IDE for themselves and possibly their peers and company.

    Of course Gosling thinks NetBeans rocks... HE WORKS FOR SUN!

    And, how scary is it that he hasn't written a servlet in "years" -- this is the father of Java?

    I've always used NetBeans whenever I've had any Java work to do. Mainly because it was the first free IDE I found that I liked the look of. It takes a bit of working out but it has always worked for me. However, it sometimes throws strange errors, is slow to load and has that horrible built-with-Java look to it. That's why I have recently switched to Eclipse. It looks a lot cleaner, loads faster and has yet to give me any grief.

    Quoting Gosling as saying "Netbeans 4.0 Rocks" is like getting a quote from Bill Gates saying "Windows XP is the best!". Please post an independent assesment of the product.

    The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

    Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
    The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

    When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
