  2. Intel?[ Go to top ]

    I still don't get it. What does intel has to do on a Java IDE, or for that matter any IDE.

    They still provide some tools - so they are interested in the platform for those tools.

    Good question. From a selling point of view they would better be pushing NetBeans :-)

  6. Compare with JTC ![ Go to top ]

    No no, just like that.

    SUN's team (JTC) is seems to be more powerful.

    BEA
    Compuware
    Iopsis Software
    JetBrains
    Oracle
    Quest Software
    SAP
    SAS
    Sun Microsystems

    with

    Embarcadero Technologies
    Insitech Groups
    Make Technologies
    US Sprint
    Verizon

    Good Battle.
  7. what use is Sun?[ Go to top ]

    JTC is little more than a working group for the JCP, since the body doesn't create standards and doesn't provide an IDE.

    IBM stand behind all what is best in Java, Jakarta, Apache, Eclipse, has
    the best Java Compiler and the best VM.

    Without IBM Linux would also not have been more than the software equivalent of a bicycle.

    Also Suns J2EE application server (I have forgotten the name of the week) is a joke.
