Google trends proves: Java is doomed

Google trends is a nice idea, and I had to apply it adhoc to Java, Ruby, Python and C#. Interesting results, I can see a decline in Java! We’re doomed :-)

And the Rails evangelists jump in and present this. Probably people would search for that or even that because Rails mostly doesn’t find RoR though. All others ignore the quabble and use Jetty or Grails.

For fun try this.

Update: Searching for Web 2.0 creates a nice graph and close to my heart: wiki.

Is werx dead?

Werx is a type safe intra-application message bus in Java. I’ve been a happy werx user for a while, but when I headed back to the werx website the developers obvisously haven’t renewed their domain (downloads can be still found on the werx sf website;). The developers aren’t answering questions, so is the project dead?

First version of cintoo Messages 1.0 released

After some months where the source hibernated on my hard drive, I’ve packaged and shipped it at last. The first release of Messages is now available. Messages is a open source framework to make internationalization easier for Java applications. It supports locales for threads and bundles can be associated with different packages. This allows the usage of different bundles for different parts of the application like plugins, installer or logging. Bundles can be managed and associated with packages without any changes in the code. This makes bundle management and refactoring much easier than with other solutions.Messages supports global locales for client applications written in Swing or SWT and thread local ones for serverside web applications.

Cintoo Messages is Apache 2.0 licensed.
