When programming in Java, everywhere I go I stumble over "dead" technology. That's a mess, since that technology was really great and still would be very useful. But some day, "someone" just declared it's death. But why?
Sometimes I wonder why rather good technology suddenly dies. Does anybody remember InfoBus? JavaBeans? Swing? Java?
All of those had been brilliant technologies, enabling programmers doing things really easily. But at one day, news about those technologies just stopped. People tend to say that those technologies "died". Well, what does that mean, and is that true?
