Sun Web Roundtable - your input requested

Steve Staso has posted a meeting notice for Sun web folks to meet on April 11th on what we should be doing to improve the customer and partner web development & deployment experience. What would really help facilitate this meeting would be feedback from the broader web community. If you have a few spare cycles, stop by Steve's blog and post a comment. The first comment, globalization of Sun's current offerings such as Startup Essentials, is an excellent start to the conversation.

I'd like to see as much of the conversation happen out in the open as possible, and I bet Steve would as well.

Here's some ideas:

  • What barriers exist for you to develop and/or deploy using Sun products and technologies?
  • Are there technologies/frameworks you wish Sun were supporting that we do not support today?
  • Are we putting too much emphasis on a particular product and/or technology?
  • If only Sun could do [insert action here], it would make my life sssooo much better!
From there, Steve's team can formulate strategies on how to move forward.

Thanks for the suggested starter questions. I've added the same ideas to my entry

Please support Ruby On Rails running out of the box. The thing is, it really needs a clever config to run well (fast, secure, etc). There are lots of config choices. One is FastCGI/Apache. Another is Mongrel. Basically although RoR is beautifully simple, a good config is a real pain in the ass to set up. Here's where you could step in and give the developer a warm fuzzy feeling.

Kevin, thanks for the input. What about JRuby on Rails as a deployment platform?

Is multi-lingual development on the JVM of interest?

Never though The Clingan Zone would be a venue for lead generation :) Money well spent IMHO, but I don't own the budget :(

Steve-o, something to think about. I'm sure Stephen would provide some valuable feedback. Me-thinks PHP would come up somewhere early in the conversation :)
