Quote of the Year Re JavaScript and Java

Here's the quote of the year for me:

I think that eventually the technical debt involved with writing large (50K-100K line) Javascript-based (non-type-safe) applications will become so huge that there may be a revival in Java based client applications to reduce maintenance costs, as well as, the desire for better performance and richer, less restrictive technical capabilities.

Geertjan Wielenga (@geertjanw) is a Principal Product Manager in the Oracle Developer Tools group living & working in Amsterdam. He is a Java technology enthusiast, evangelist, trainer, speaker, and writer. He blogs here daily.

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
