Some Friday Entertainment: Picking On Java

JRM kicked off a good old fashion Java bashing session on his blog and the comments are a hoot.

If you're a fan of Java, you could always stop by and try to stick up for it. Or, you can head on over and heap your favorite criticism on it. I think my favorite complaint was captured there:

I think the problem with Java is not it's verbosity, but as someone else said "infrastructure framework". I have to go through so many classes, through so much leaps and bounds, to do anything.

I need a factory, to create a manager. Then I factor anther factory, to create a stream, then assign that stream to the manager. Afterwords, I give the manager to a dispatcher.

I think the answers to this is to embrace the IDE more, and let it hide all the cruft. Though I do like contributor who suggested maybe JRM just needs to learn to "type faster."

Seriously, it's a fun post.
