It's a pity.
"Premature optimization is the root of all evil"
Is this an advert for Tapestry, or one of a hundred other frameworks, named because you have to stitch it together yourself, and it's like a medieval war getting it working.
Still at least you can't criticise their naming conventions. You can't say you weren't given clues about what you were getting.
Take Spring, for instance, it's clear they're trying to make money by fooling people into thinking it means "Spring into action" when in fact it's equivalent to Hibernate which is more honest because it's explicit that anything you write in it, won't wake up until after the thaw.
There's no real argument you can place against Java. You point out that one library is crap, and they say, well you should be using any of another dozen different freeware installations, and when something goes wrong, they all start salivating because "It's a great challenge that there's noone to ring, and I'll just ask the brotherhood if any of those has come across this feature."
It's like feminism, or religion. No two people have the same opinion of what it should be, other than whatever you want to do, it will be the opposite. No two people practice the same ideology, and and whatever arguments you propose against any of the flaws, they say, "It's not meant to be like that."
I don't know why Java's even got version numbers, they should just name them after rivers or something. Or better still, how many more machines you're going to have to buy to run the ridiculous middleware frameworks.
Meanwhile the Project Manager's crying in my office.
