the need for J2EE-like standards for Python


Hi, all.

I think many would agree that the community-agreed standards could boost
the development of the [python] applications in a defined areas. In
particular, the lack of J2EE-like standards about servlets or
transactions impedes development of web/enterpise applications.

It shoudn't be overly complex and elaborate like J2EE but it could be
much simple, like, say, DB-API. As it is now, when developing
non-trivial Python application we have to face the substantial risk of
"lock-in" to particular framework/vendor. The fact that the framework is
open source and not proprietary doesn't help much. It is usually too
much work to abstract from a particular framework used and it looks like
a wrong answer anyway. It is IMO better to invent/publish such an
abstraction beforehand so that different frameworks could implement it.

There is many topics that could be addressed: servlet containers,
component architecture, naming service, etc, etc.

What do the community think?
Is there an interest to this direction of "maturing" among the Python
developers?
May be there is already something going on which I'm not aware of?

Seems to me that the current diversity of offering for basic
infrastructure things like web interaction is caused by uncertainty
about how it should be done and range of options on the subject.

Hopefully this would sorted out finally, but why not to hurry it a bit. ;)

Is J2EE free or not?? I'm confused by Sun's web site. I've been to the sun web site and found downloads pages for J2SE and J2EE, but the J2EE page only shows updates. Does this mean that J2EE isn't free? I noticed a page in which I could request a license for J2EE, but I only see major companies listed as licensees. Lou Arnold

well, at least for the forseeable future, it looks like. i've always thought mauricio aguilar was a loony for continuing to post these job stats, when we all know C#/.NET jobs HAVE to go up sometime and equalize as VB and other non-.NET microsoft tech jobs go down. also, search engines can frequently be misused, so i tend to go with guys who actually COUNT by eye if possible (as a guy below did). here's the relevant stats:

Hi, I'm wondering if I can get a reasonably civil (without starting any huge wars) opinion on how server-side PHP compares to server-side Java.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
