A Conversation with Adam Bosworth. A Conversation with Adam Bosworth - . [Collaxa's Take]
Very interesting conversation. Gets BEA's point of view about java, web services and their integrated stack + development tools approach.
For Adam Bosworth java should get metadata (they created 2 JSRs around that), native XML and messaging.
When IBM bought Rationale I thought BEA Workshop was toast, but I was wrong: they don't target the same users as WSAD. They're competing with Microsoft for business developers.
