Yes! The Oscars are on its way, and Java developers can do their own voting for things important in your day to day job instead of some fantasy woman (such as PenÃ©lope Cruz). You can express your support for your favorite Java open source project at the following locations (and I know yours is
Ruby on Rails Wicket)
- The Java Developers Journal 2007 Readers' Choice Awards (note the 2004 in the URL) and win a FREE years extension of your subscription. (looks like this is only for subscribers)
- The java.com Annual Duke's Choice Awards
- The sourceforge.net Community Choice Awards (site still is for 2006)
Do I miss the JavaLobby and java.about.com yearly polls? Of course, TheServerSide.com has about a two-weekly polls where JSF gets trashed as being to complicated, Tapestry for being built up from start with every major release, Wicket for being to server memory hungry, Struts for being too old skool (or dead), RIFE for having ugly templates and so on. Perhaps they should create an award for the most uninteresting, uncriticized open source enterprise project.
I want to see some awards!
