Java to go everywhere: Gosling

By : |May 21, 2004 0

HYDERABAD: Day two of SunTech 2004 saw developers make a beeline for the open source session by Danese Cooper. The much-awaited James Gosling keynote address on day two of SunTech 2004 stirred and inspired the developers to let their imagination soar.”Java will go wherever developers will take it and that will be everywhere,” stated Gosling. Right from devices such as mobile phones to hitech embedded programming Java is the language in which things will talk to each other.

Steering away from the technical details Gosling painted the big picture for the developers. They cheered at his responses comparing ASP and JSP and loved the little bit of nitpicking he indulged in while building a case for Java. Java is going places and will go places, said Gosling quoting instances of implementation right from healthcare in Brazil to Mars Rover in space to the mobile phone in your hand.

Patiently fielding questions coming from varying levels of understanding of Java the man who invented it believes that the language is indeed in the hands of the developer community.”Java community is distributed across the world, thanks to Internet,” he said.

Exhorting developers to take advantage of the technical sessions lined up for them on various Java tools he told them to utilize the hands on session.

However, the one track that attracted most developers on day two was on open source development. The developers in attendance out numbered the seating capacity allocated for the session. Result – after much hullaboo a repeat session with the speaker open source evangelist at Sun Danese Cooper was organized for those could attend the first one.

The space allocated for hands on session went largely under-utilized. Ditto with a number of technical sessions.
