Open Source

Last week’s JavaOne had a separate track on open source, and there’s been a substantial number of very interesting panels, discussions and presentations. However, i felt that these talks concentrated mostly on big, well-established and very broad open-source communities.

But above all the rest, there are projects that have changed the field, some of them declining, and some strong as ever. Here are my top three: JUnit...

As this blog shows, almost every imaginable field of the programming has been covered with open source Java projects, all vying for the same #1 spot. It may seem at first that this can only be a good thing, competition driving the creators forward to create better and faster libraries. However, not all is fair in this kingdom. A recent survey that has been performed on the XML data binding...
