Subject Re: Developing Harmony
Date Wed, 18 May 2005 11:04:48 GMT
 We shouldl design in such a way that , we should get some 
interfacing/bootstrapping issues in C (can be C++ but i think due to its 
direct linking to natives C will be prefered i can present more argo over it 
though ;) )
 and then come back to java again until we feel ctuck some where (though 
what my experiance suggest and i have looked it into the presented projects, 
we can get rid of those concerete walls if any one we have to have face in 
the running of time )
 so what i am saying i m summing it up
 write in java using C.
 java provides us all those features which we need to go to this road , from 
the management, maintianbility and other stuffs (i m not writting SE book 
though ha ha ha) u all knows better.
 so what u think comment ?
