I myself is a tyro of Java. I learned a lot from Jabber's posts. Above all his expertise, the more important things are his instinct views over techniques and attitude toward life. What a novice who want to enter a wholly-new business most needed are guidelines for how to learn, an overview of this business plus its direction, and the rules of the business.
That is the precious value of Jabber!
I'd like to add some words on why Java will last long. First of all, Java was born up to against a monster--Microsoft. It aims at the vital flaw of microsoft's structure,that is, portability. A lot of techniques out of microsoft are cute, however, too proprietary. On the other hand, the high-end market is dominated by none-wintel structures, say, mainframe systems and RISC systems. These systems used to apply their own tools to develop imformation systems. Therefore, in the need of being adapted to new Internet era, Java was picked up to take the responsibility.
Moreover, Java proves itself enough robust. The robustness ensures Java to be a platform to handle various systems from embeded devices to mission-critical things. With the wintel structure still unsuitable to occupy the high-end market, with more supports from more IT giants, we can derive a conclusion that there is still room for we Javaers to survive.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
