Advantages of Java on the Desktop. Part II... Lets go for it...
Hi every body,
I have read the answers given at the previous topic regarding advantages of Java on the Desktop.
I understand Java is more secure, safe, and platform independent language.. (Which is a pretty good advantage)
But I still think there is a pretty good set functionality in MS Visual Basic (VBA, VB6, VB.Net) that is inherent to the desktop arena such as Web Components, Pivot Table, Pivot Chart and so on... that I have come with a great(maybe ridiculous) idea...
Why not to develop such functionality as open standard objects in Open Source fashion... in Java...?
I am not so experienced to drive such project, but, I know there is experienced people here. I also know that the best way to learn is to engage into a challenging project. Like this... so what do you think or recommend?
Do you think we may build some team to develop such functionality rev.1 for us as a community of developers?
Of course I do not work for Sun... (which is not a bad idea after all) but in a semiconductors multinational company in Costa Rica, Central America so do not think odd of me... It is really and sincerely an open source initiative...
Any ideas on where to start? (or even if it would be sane to start?)
