One Response to “Come see JBuilder 2005 in Cupertino”
Thanks to all those who arranged the JBuilder2005 event in Cupertino on Dec. 8th.
It was good to have the opportunity to meet with some of the developers.
As a relatively new Java developer I found Karl’s talk was a useful introduction to Java Server Faces. I look forward to seeing whether JSF will help in the separation of content and presentation on the server.
I think the audience was quite mixed and after an initial period of calm, the questions flooded in. Some comments were of the ‘What’s in it for me’ variety such as ‘Why will JSF help in my development process?’ while others complained that JSF did not go about improving the look and feel on the client GUI. My comment on this is that doesn’t JDNC go someway towards improving the look and feel for the client? For more information on JDNC See Eitan Suez’s blog
I agree with Karl Ewald that user/developer feedback is welcome and necessary for the development of technologies such as JSF and for Borland to be able to integrate these technologies into JBuilder. Without having a massive amount of user/audience analysis , how else are Borland going to get to hear what people want? I welcome the opportunity to feedback either via the Borland Developer Network or in events such as BorCon or local presentations. John Withington.
