JNBridge Eases Developer Fatigue With Interoperability Technologies
Latest 'Ailment' Relieved by .NET-Java Compatibility Tools
Boulder, Colorado, February 18, 2015 – Software developers have historically embraced diversity in programming languages, databases, operating systems and other technologies. After all, increased complexity is no reason to ignore the best tool for a job, and developers have always had great appetites for new technologies. But this comes at a price: developer fatigue, a byproduct of having to learn and adjust to new languages and technologies, while also trying to remain productive.
Developer fatigue is nothing new, but it’s getting much worse for several reasons. First, full-stack developers — developers with a specialized knowledge in all stages of software development — are naturally in great demand. As you can imagine, achieving and maintaining this distinction is quite a mental feat, given the level of proficiency he or she must attain in any number of areas. Additionally, developers must contend with new projects created by open source and new hardware platforms (like mobile) that host new software. With all these emerging technologies, it’s no wonder developers are struggling.
One way to alleviate developer fatigue is to make the most of the languages and technologies that developers already know, and then gradually introduce new ones. Many new languages, platforms and software technologies are rooted in .NET or in Java. If both the familiar and the new technologies are based on the same platform you’re familiar with, you’re already ahead of the game: Integration is likely straightforward, as it’s already designed into the technology. But if not, there’s still hope. Interoperability tools like JNBridgePro can bridge Java and .NET technologies, providing welcome relief from developer fatigue.
