Moving to NetBeans

Posted by brunos on November 30, 2006 at 1:21 PM PST

No, I'm not changing IDEs, I'm already a NetBeans user. But after 6 years, I'm coming back to work for Sun Microsystems, and have just joined the NetBeans Team.

I had a great time working at Sun in the past.

Bringing some Harmony to Java and Open Source discussion!

Posted by brunos on May 9, 2005 at 7:50 AM PDT

Date: April 9, 2005. Location: Pirenopolis, a small city in the center of Brazil. In a bucolic countryside, hours away from any major urban area, with cold waterfalls and butterflies using our hats as landing pads.

What about focusing on the right discussions?

Posted by brunos on February 9, 2005 at 12:42 PM PST

I just read at JavaLobby a discussion about what James Gosling said of open source developers and compatibility. I consider James a long time friend, and I think he is somewhat right. But the main problem on this Java and Open Source discussion is that there seems to be a lot of misinformation on both sides.

Open Source, Standards and Compatibility: Software Freedom, is this a valid concept?

I have been discussing for a long time how only open source is not enough for Governments. Although open source is a strong point of freedom it allows you to end up tied to a product, what may be not as bad as being tied to a vendor, but may bring you the same types of problems, specially if you are the government.

Discussing the Java Community Process

Posted by brunos on September 10, 2003 at 6:40 AM PDT

The JCP is were we define the Java standards. It is an important process to guarantee at the same time that the technology evolves fast enough to keep it competitive, and also that it maintains the expected compatibility.
