(May 6, 2003) - Hoping to provide an alternative for C# developers to
Microsoft's own Visual Studio .NET and Visual Studio .NET 2003 products,
Borland has announced the mid-summer availability of their new C#Builder IDE
and the future availability of their Janeva J2EE interoperability product.
.NETDJ recently got the details on these new products in an interview with
Michael Swindell, director of Developer Products and Technology for Borland
and Jamie Sison, director of Business Development and Product Marketing in
Borland's Enterprise Business unit.
The IDE will support the creation of all the major .NET project types, with
an extra focus on application lifecycle management, via tight integration

available mid-summer and will ship in four versions: Personal ($69),
Professional ($999), Enterprise ... (more)
In May 2000 I was invited to Microsoft's corporate headquarters in Redmond
for a special "technology experts" summit. At this summit, the forty or so of
us in attendance were given a special sneak preview of a technology upon
which Microsoft planned to "bet the farm," so to speak. They called the

one form or another.

Welcome to the first issue of SYS-CON Media's new .NET Developer's Journal.
We've started this magazine because we're excited about .NET. We're excited

GUI-based development to even the most complicated kinds of development.
We're excited about the .NET Framework's potential for radically decreasing
the amount of custom code developers must write. Finally, perhaps most of
all, we're excited about .NET's potential to become the industry's platform
(January 14, 2003) - Microsoft has just announced a technology that is sure
to represent the most successful step yet towards it vision of "information
anywhere, anytime, on any device." Smart Personal Objects Technology (SPOT)
will deliver up-to-the-minute stock reports, sports scores, and all sorts of
other data directly to personal items as small as wrist watches and cell
Interestingly enough, the bandwidth being used to support this technology is
the same kind of radio technology that currently supports piped-in music such
as Muzak. It will be seen within the next ye... (more)
The issue of this magazine that you now hold in your hands represents a
landmark of truly historic proportions. Never before in the realm of .NET
media has any magazine dared to focus an entire issue on the topic of
non-Windows CLI implementations. For many of you, this will be your very
first glimpse of technologies guaranteed to dramatically change the way in
which you work. For others, the very existence of this issue should be seen
as the ultimate vindication of all the long hours you have labored unsung
building the next generation of CLI.
