Java Devs Face MetaData Agendas in 2004

Java devs could get at least two metadata reference implementations to play with early next year. The JCP has said it would have an early release RI for J2SE 1.5 (Tiger), and BEA has said they are gearing up for an early release of an RI for its JSR 181, whether or not it has full JCP approvals by then. IDN spoke with Onno Kluyt, Program Director at the JCP, to get a feel for what may be coming, and how devs can keep a straight head -- and maybe even put in their own comments.

J2EE 1.4 Spec Is Final -- Finally

The J2EE 1.4 spec is final, and downloads will be available Nov. 24.

Roger Oberg, director of market management at IBM's Rational Products unit ticked off 5 keys to why modeling tools are poised to become more powerful than ever -- and ready to help devs write, integrate, deploy and update applications without coding 100s or 1000s of lines of Java/J2EE.

OptimalJ Taps Modeling to Speed Complex Java Projects

Recent studies by The Middleware Company and EDS found that traditional Java/J2EE development practices are too inefficient to be used for many dev projects. So, Compuware Corp.'s latest upgrade to its OptimalJ enterprise development environment adds features to reduce the code delays and expenses that Java/J2EE developers face daily during testing, integration and implementation. Compuware has a similar commitment to bring MDA to .NET is on the drawing board. See how modeling has been brought down to earth to build efficiencies.
