Java Stuff Up Again
Category : Commentary/JavaUp.txt
Tomcat and Eclipse are running fine with Java 1.4.1. On the Internet, the speed with which you can find solutions is exhilarating. It doesn't matter that we're living in Singapore. The world is one big Silicon Valley when you're connected like this.
This looks like a relatively painless upgrade - for us, at least - putting aside the grumbling that's still coming out elsewhere in the world. People ought to remember that when Sun released 1.4.0, it was termed a totally unusable release - they took a year to get things right.
Java 1.4.1 is supposed to be the foundation that will allow Apple to keep pace with Sun on Java releases - not more than 60 days, they say. If they keep to this, things will be just fine.
