ISV's-eye view, part 1: 2005 a big year for Linux
Jack Loftus writes "Bells and whistles are spoiling a handy application development tool, the integrated development environment (IDE), said Niel Powers, a 20-year application development veteran. Even so, there are ways to simplify your IDE world and get the job done, he said. In the second part of our interview with Powers, he offers an update on and tips for using both IDEs and SOAs (service-oriented architectures). Powers is vice president of products for the Progress Company, a business unit of Progress Software Corp., Bedford, Mass. He discussed the state of Linux application development in part one of this two-part interview."
