But in my humble, but informed opinion, Java's place for a Linux user is very much undermined by better performing more technically able languages, like C and C++...

If it were not so, there'd be a Java based operating system, maybe even the Linux Kernel ported to it Laughing but there's not, and so it has a limited place.


I totally understand that and respect you have programming knowledge way above mine (I'm an eternal noobie), but then surely if LXF only focused on the 'more technically able' languages then there wouldn't be an endless barrage of Python/PHP/MYSQL tutorials. Oh, and as far as I know the Linux Kernel isn't in Python either. Smile

I was just curious as to why, in all my years of LFX reading, Java's never been touched upon? Regardless of its capabilities and limitations.

In hind-sight of all of that and reading over a few articles here and remembering the articles on LXF , i suppose it has never been actually relevent in someones view at LXF.

What may be relevent now is OpenJDK 7 open source java , but , i don't understand(either) why not since if this magazine ever focused on Java it would do so about programming "Jakarta Tomcat JSP/Servlet server"(A Java Apache server).

I wonder if LXF could see it clear to jumping past cgi-bin to Jakarta about the Tomcat, of bundled with many Linux distro flavours is an ordinary Apache http/https server.

I don't stretch myself as far as certificates and https but that finally for small business building scalable portable sites for trade is the final goal, with security and identity.

I'd say Perl/bash/PHP were more relevent , but the Jakarta Tomcat Apache Javaserver in the web server world is nothing to throw aside to another platform idea.

Interesting to mention it about LXF.(note: having used java for Linux it has its minor differences but is in no way stranded because it not in Windows, its the size and quality multi-national companys produce the stuff).
