Why Open Source Java will Win SaaS Platform Wars

,----[ Quote ]
| Every ten years there is a dramatic shift in the development tools world: in
| the 80s to client/server, in the 90s to three tier and now in the 00’s to
| SaaS. In each of these shifts, the dominant development tools providers have
| been supplanted by a new generation. This time around, the seismic shift is
| being driven by the on-demand architecture and the ISVs have the most urgent
| need to rebuild their solutions to remain competitive.
| Over the next five years, we will see the 500 pound gorillas of the
| development world like Microsoft’s ASP.NET and Sun’s J2EE unseated. In their
| place will be new software platforms based on traditional languages that are
| specially designed to enable development of SaaS applications.
