cuz’ with Java you don’t have to deal with all those nasty API calls…
NET2Java uses the NET2Java Library to translate .NET API calls into Java Platform API calls.
Because .NET programs usually make lots of .NET platform API calls.
I guess I’m completely missing the point here as the way I read this suggests the belief that “with .NET your Bound and Gag’d to the .NET API. If you want real freedom and independence from the API, then its time to give Java a try!”
I sincerely hope that I am wrong in my interpretation cuz’ if I’m not…
I’m gunna have a bit more fun with this one :D
In other words,
Lets compare just who’s bound and just who’s gag’d to not just the platform API but to one language and one language only….
“well, I guess theres those other so called “languages”/language compilers that emit Java bytecodes, but toys both belong and should stay in the sandbox, and the REAL programming languages should… err wait… No, that won’t work… Ummm…”
While Mr. Gosling figures out where he wants to play with his toys, if you want to understand just how bad life can really get, use the above mentioned tool to convert your VS.NET 2003 and/or 2005 project files to the
Java Lanugage Java Platform “something or other formerly known as J2EE” (I think that’s how to properly reference it now… although that may not be correct either…)
NOTE: Simmer down their Javanator, I don’t really hate Java…
Just taking the opportunity to take a jab or two while I point .NET developers who might have interest in this sort of thing to what looks to be a pretty nifty little NetBeans plugin.
Besides, its not like I’m all that worried that doing so will somehow change the momentum of the IT industry back towards Java’s flavor, as once they drinketh from the bitter coffee cup brewed from Silicon Valley’s finest, they’ll be heading back north quicker than you can say
“See, I told you that wasn’t Starbucks, blahhhh!”
Don’t get me wrong…. I have nothing against Silicon…
I just don’t want drink it!
NOTE TO .NET Developers: When your’e done re-convincing yourself why you chose to develop on top of the .NET platform in the first place, you know where to find me :) I’ll welcome you back with open arms, a Venti Chai Latte (my guess is that coffee is not exactly the thing you’ll be craving at this stage), and if necessary, a hug.
My guess is at this same mentioned stage you’ll probably need one ;))
Peace and Love unto you all :D
Oh, and before you start filling out the
Fan“I hate that Mdot guy!” Club membership survey form below, please see my comments at the bottom of my last “Java… It’s Good To The Last DropKick…” post from about this time last week…
Then if you’re still interested in joining, by all means, please fill out the form below explaining in as many words as you feel necessary just what it is you feel qualifies you for membership.
Oh, and don’t forget to send in the $35 initiation fee, and the $25/monthly dues this time, K… I hate charging interest fees, but somuvya are starting to slack on payments, and its not fair to the rest of the members to let a few of you slide here and there and yet still enjoy all the benefits of membership!
What are the benefits, you ask? Send me $35 and I’ll send you the list, there cheapy! :D
