Anne Thomas Manes, a Boston-based analyst with Burton Group Inc., echoed those sentiments.
"What bothers me is that I really don't like JAX-WS," Manes said. "The Sun JAX-WS team really needs to learn a few things from Microsoft. They should be building something like Indigo—a common programming model that encompasses JAX-WS/JAXM, JMS, RMI and EJB. But Sun doesn't get that."
Can someone please send me the name of the person at Sun who is responsible for this? (Yes, I'm still interested in seeing prediction #7 of 2004 come true... how sad.)
