Designing Enterprise Applications with Java 2 Enterprise Edition 2000

THE JavaTM platform was conceived to connect door knobs to light switches—
smart door knobs to smart light switches, certainly, but door knobs to light switches
nonetheless. And yet it is now widely used for building large server-side applications
which run on some of the largest computers in the world. It is the fate of great
inventions to be used in ways unimagined by their creators even when the creators—
like James Gosling, creator of the Java programming language—see a
horizon the rest of us do not glimpse. This is part of what makes an invention great.
In retrospect, the phenomenal success of the Java platform on servers might
seem inevitable. After all, the platform provides exactly what is needed to transform
the Internet from a publishing medium to a transactional one. The Java platform
is available on all of the many different servers where Internet applications
run. “Write Once, Run AnywhereTM”works so the programs can be quickly tested
and deployed. Engineers are several times more productive when they write to the
Java platform. But being the right thing at the right time isn’t the whole story. Two
more elements were needed: Technical leaders who were looking in a different
direction than most of us were, and business leaders who were eager to work
together in new ways so the ideas could become reality. The result was the development
of consistent products across the computer industry in a surprisingly short
period of time.
