All that Jazz

For those who haven’t heard of Jazz yet, it’s IBM’s next generation team collaboration platform. What the heck does that actually mean? Well, I think it’s better just to watch a video and find out. However, I’m not incredibly convinced of this so called “Community Driven Commercial Development.” If I learned anything so far in my career, people in commercial development are bad at community building and open-source style of development (note, this is a generalization, but this is what I’ve mostly seen).

On a side note, all I can say is that Jazz loves Eclipse Forms. Who said you can’t do cool things in the Eclipse UI?

    It is all great and sad at the same time. First of all, what is the point to create community site like jazz.net if only IBM partners can join? What kind of community is that?

    I do like forms, but with all its beauty they have severe issues with layout managers that makes it really hard to use for something complicated.

    I don’t speak for IBM here, but I believe they are slowly opening up jazz.net to the public. There’s no release yet so I think everything is still in beta.

    In regards to Forms, as Dejan would say, “put a breakpoint in it and supply a patch” 🙂

    Is Planet Eclipse now a forum for advertising about proprietary products?

    Forgive me anonymous coward, for I have sinned. I didn’t mean this to be an advertisement. I will have a follow-up post with some of my issues around Jazz and in general, “commercial open-source driven projects”

    Also, for people that don’t know this, I’ve always put Eclipse first beyond any other product. For me, the most important thing is growing the success of Eclipse.
