Welcome to another jam-packed edition of Java Tech Journal – our 21st edition shows that we‘re coming of age. Whilst Java should be at your very core, it is no longer the be all and end all – other languages play a huge part in developing cutting-edge applications. This polyglot revolution has been brewing for a while, but only in 2012 are we starting to see it really come to the floor. No longer do we just write in Java, but to really be a cut above the rest, you need to venture out into the unknown. As a starting point, this can be by looking at JVM languages such as Groovy, JRuby and Scala, and taking onboard what they offer that is new. But don’t discount other languages like JavaScript in the whole process. If you remain isolated, there’s a big chance you could be left behind in this new wave of Java development, where the browser becomes ever more important. This was the thinking behind this issue of Java Tech Journal – to break down the boundaries to content you might not have considered before. We’ve got an interview with Mr JavaScript himself, Douglas Crockford (with some interesting Java comments) and a brief history of WebSockets from Scott Mattocks. Travelling into uncharted waters can be a bit overwhelming at first, so we’ve also got some pure Java stuff to make you feel at ease. Former JTJ editor Jessica Thornsby returns with some handy best practices for using version control system Subversion, whilst Roman Pichler showcases his new agile project, The Project Canvas. There’s also a bumper feature on Typesafe’s recent activity, suggesting that Scala could be moving on to higher ground. We’ve talked to SonarSource CEO Olivier Gaudin about Continuous Integration and code quality management as well. The Java landscape is starting to look a bit different. Mobile, the Web, Big Data, virtualisation and the DevOps are no longer just buzzwords but are starting to drive where Java’s heading. We’re hoping to reflect that with this issue and moving forward.
