Is he talking overhead of HTTP headers? Handshaking on websockets?
The worst part of the facebook app has been the fact that when you load it up it wipes out the screen of any data you had last time, then pulls in a full new set over a crappy mobile network connection which very often timed out. Had the app cached (HTML5 localStorage?) postings and displayed what you already had, while trying to get new ones, it would have been much more useful.
He can blame HTML5 all he wants, but poor design decisions could be made for any language and platform.
Would have been much more impressive to use something original or at least less well known.
I know very well that the game was limited print run, I made sure to pick up a copy before it sold out.
abigsmurf is wrong about why it fell on the game rankings chart. The game was #7 three days ago which was already well after most places have sold out. Had it not been for the cease and desist, it would have remained highly ranked for quite some time.
It went from #7 to #170 in 3 days following the cease and desist. It had nothing to do with availability and everything to do with the reaction to Game Workshop's actions.
It was changed to javax.swing.* when it was released. "x" is more extension than experimental.
When you say J2ee do you mean strict Sun implementation?
I find that eclipse webtools with the spring IDE plugin does a good job for developing server-side java.
