Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Microsoft is attempting to move developers away from Java and toward its own C/C++ development system -- and it's all Sun's fault, apparently. Microsoft's Visual C Product Manager, Jeff Ressler, recently appeared on a live Web chat session hosted by the Enterprise Assistance Web site and claimed that Visual C was a far better development environment than Visual J for VARs who are working on e-commerce solutions. His reason: "Sun and the lawsuit they have brought against Microsoft has directly threatened the industry's ability to innovate in Java. This has most directly affected our Visual J development tool. We continue to sell it, and apps built with it will not be subject to any limitations, but its future is not definitive [we assume he means 'definite']." Claiming that a move threatens "the industry's ability to innovate" is Microsoft's stock phrase for any action that directly affects its own programmes -- the DoJ's request that Microsoft unbundle Internet Explorer from Windows was also said to be just such a threat. ® See also Microsoft preps Cool to tool on Java
