Dev. environment: JDK 1.3.0 on Linux vs. Visual Cafe on Win NT
Posted by Cristian Gheorghe on January 31, 2001 at 5:47 PM
I am working for a company which recently got bought out.
Both offices use Java and the resulting products (which
are still separated and stand-alone) will be bundled into
one installation CD-ROM.
What they want to do right now is to standardize the dev.
environment. We use Linux Red Hat, JDK 1.3.0 and CVS for
source history and they use windows NT, Visual Cafe and
VSS for surce history. I have also heard them talking
about JDK 1.2.2 but I am a bit cofused here: I thought
that Visual Cafe comes with it's own implementation of
the Java compiler but perhaps it still has to adhere to
some standard (i.e. JDK 1.2.2).
I am charged to making some recomandations, sustain them with
articles on the web, things of this nature.
I happen to think that the Linux, JDK and CVS is a better
model in terms of flexibility and stability but I would also
like to hear from people who think otherwise.
Can you please help me out on this ...???
