Bruce Eckel's Thinking in Java Contents | Prev | Next

Actually, the only thing that’s missing is the application builder tool, and this is where the real revolution lies. Microsoft’s Visual Basic and Visual C++ require their application builder tools, as does Borland’s Delphi and C++ Builder. If you want the application builder tool to get better, you have to cross your fingers and hope the vendor will give you what you want. But Java is an open environment, and so not only does it allow for competing application builder environments, it encourages them. And for these tools to be taken seriously, they must support Java Beans. This means a leveled playing field: if a better application builder tool comes along, you’re not tied to the one you’ve been using – you can pick up and move to the new one and increase your productivity. This kind of competitive environment for GUI application builder tools has not been seen before, and the resulting competition can generate only positive results for the productivity of the programmer.
