SuSE, openSUSE The first major effect of Attachmate buying Novell (and thus, SUSE) has come into, uh, effect. Novell, of course, is the birth place of Mono, the open source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework. Reports indicate Mono developers have been fired as part of the streamlining process, but according to Attachmate's CEO, they weren't fired because of Mono.

ASP (or the original Java JSP) is old tech. Try Google Web Toolkit (GWT) which allows use of Java both on client and server side. Lightyears ahead.


That's really an issue of personal taste. A lot of people don't like marking up their UI in code. And if you have a web design team that is used to using tools like Dreamweaver, you can completely forget about GWT.

@Pantheraleo:
Google Web Toolkit can produce layouts in code or declaratively using its 'UI Binder' technology. Plus, the overall layout is achieved using CSS.

Might be worth you checking out Google Web Toolkit again, since your info is out of date. Especially since GWT is evolving at a fast rate (it ought to be, the might of Google is developing it).

I've looked it recently. Didn't realize you could develop UIs outside of code now.

But I stll have other problems with it. It's component set is very primitive for example. Granted, there are third party add-ons to solve that, such as SmartGWT.

The other problem I have with it is that for very large projects, the compile / test cycle becomes somewhat unmanageable.
