Eric Lai of Computerworld for his story entitled “More Oracle users plumping for Linux”. (I was unable to find the original story on Computerworld, but it has been echoed on Techworld.com and elsewhere).
The story is about Oracle users wanting to consolidate servers and move to Linux. It also briefly mentions tooling, explaining that use of Oracle Application Express and Microsoft Visual Studio are growing, and then Eric makes the following profound statement:
IBM WebSphere and the open-source Eclipse toolkit are also picking up in popularity, while older toolkits such as PowerBuilder, ColdFusion, Borland and NetBeans are losing steam.
And yes, I know the point he is trying to make, But … a J2EE server, a visual tool, a server/language that has no specific tooling, a company, and a Java IDE … yeah, right, top notch reporting, Eric!
