All OK, but then your users asked you for a multiplatform application, so you rewrote your application in Java with AWT, but your ... (more)

How to Simplify MDD to Speed Java Enterprise Development

A notable problem of Java Enterprise Development is its inherent complexity. Also if you use Java EE standard or Spring, your development team will never be as productive as a VisualBasic, PHP, Ruby&Rails, 4GL or even COBOL development team. The complexity of Java Enterprise requires very skilled developers, moreover these developers need to write a lot of code.
