I've spent the past week working on some sample code in C and Objective-C for a book on Bonjour (formerly Rendezvous) I'm co-authoring with Stuart Cheshire. When I first came to Java, the guys with the Smalltalk roots were stressing that a method call should feel like making a request of an object and not like a function call from C.
I was just sitting here saying to myself, "do you know what we really need? Another license for code." CDDL, JRL, and JIUL might be a whole lot better than SCSL but it seems as if Sun is releasing new licenses more often than dot releases of J2SE.
Last call for Anniversary cards
I guess deadlines are made to be missed. We had a request to open the submissions up again for anniversary cards for our second birthday. Take out your camera or draw your pictures of Duke helping us celebrate java.net's second anniversary and email them to us by next Tuesday. We'll email you back when we've received your submission. Thanks.
