News: Library Poll on 7ransCode

  1. Library Poll on 7ransCode (5 messages)

    Blogger tea42 has posted a short poll on libraries, with three questions: should libraries be named creatively or categorically, how should they be packaged, and what of four library names are you most likely to use. The poll is for Ruby, generally (as the blog only mentions Ruby) but perhaps Java programmers would benefit from considering it too. After all, consider what some of our libraries and projects are called: "Spring," "Kodo," "Glassfish," "Toplink," "Celtix." Part of the issue for Java is that it's got a far more mature culture compared to Ruby, despite both languages being roughly the same age; there's more competition in the Java space for "good names," so originality can sometimes be the difference between being "one in the crowd" and a front-runner. Ruby's culture is different than Java's, so a library name like "climax" (one of the poll possibilities!) might be more appropriate than it would for Java... but perhaps people disagree. Check out the poll! The poll responses are offered to you immediately after submission.
