The Apache Software Foundation has announced the release of Beehive 1.0, its component toolkit for J2EE and Struts. Beehive is aimed at making it easier to develop Web applications in Java by reducing the amount of coding needed to produce a working application.
http://beehive.apache.org/ is a real honey pot of information. Still, time will tell if this makes the workers more productive.
I’m going to get buzzy setting this up.
This is great, I mean, if you’re new to this, then you can spend ages just flying around sampling various projects. Gluecode has really bloomed for web application development like this.
I’m sure there are companies out there who have really been stung by IBM’s websphere or BEA’s application servers costing hundreds of thousands in licenses.
Ok, I’m done.
