Chapter 1. Developing with Java and Flex

Chapter 1. Developing with Java and Flex

Two of the most difficult decisions for a project manager, CIO, or developer are which platform to target and which language to use. Books have been dedicated to the relative merits of one language over another and the options are much more complex than you might think. While a developer may have a preference, based on his own experiences or selfish desires, the project may be best served by different choices.

And there are many available. The IT/developer world is constantly changing. During the last 15 years, many languages have found and lost favor, while seemingly "dead" languages such as Ruby have experienced a resurgence. (In Ruby's case, this is due to the arrival of the Rails framework). I expect this trend to continue and that the life of a developer will be one of constant evolution.
