Comment on "Apple's Overall Strategy for Frameworks"
by Andrew L — Dec 13
I'm working on a number of WO projects and despite a strong Obj-C background on OPENSTEP, it seems like EOF and WO in java was a sensible and necessary move to me.

How long were they going to keep maintaining FoundationKit on various versions of Solaris and Win32? What about those platforms that are not on the supported list such as LINUX? What about on-going database and LDAP driver development for EOF/Obj-C? As far as I can see, the java platform and technologies like JNDI and JDBC solve these basic problems and at the same time, open up a huge range of opportunity for integration with other J2EE systems. I think it was a good move.
