Hi Dan -


I couldn't agree more. I am still with the Java faithful and laugh at all the silly Ruby folks! I am doing a Web 2.0-style startup on 100% Java (but in reality, 99% open source!) Java is better than all other languages because everything I could ever want is in open source - no matter what problem I run across. I wouldn't dream of hacking around in a scripting language - I'd rather have a full toolshed of free stuff than the freedom to rewrite everything from Jakarta! :-)

    "Java is better than all other languages because everything I could ever want is in open source - no matter what problem I run across."

    So where's the Java equivalent of CPAN (http://search.cpan.org/) then?

      Itís all available and 99% open source in Java! As opposed to the hackish scripting languages! Where itís 100% open source!

      Letís see a Java guy replicate cpan -i Log::Log4Perl; perldoc Log::Log4Perl

        CPAN is for perl.
        as Maven is for java.

        The Main site: http://maven.apache.org/
        The repository: http://www.ibiblio.org/maven2/
