Hi Budi,
I found out that you have written a couple books in .NET as well. What is your opinion about the .NET and J2EE development platform? What are the strength and weakness of each framework? Do you have any preferences?
Thanks,
Roger

I am particularly interested in the comparison in terms of:
1) development speed,
2) capapility of comparison
3) maintenance of the application
4) tools of the development

What to make of this claim?
Microsoft .NET Pet Shop

New! Version 1.5
You need to see it to believe it! We implemented Sun's own J2EE best practices blueprint application, the Java Pet Store, using C# and Microsoft .NET. The result? The exact same application functionality was implemented in just 1/4 the code using C#/ASP.NET, and it performs over 10 times faster than the latest published benchmarks of the J2EE application in independent tests conducted by VeriTest, a respected leader in independent software testing.

There are lies, damn lies, and benchmarks, so it is said.
If you're 1/4 the code and 1/4 the reliability and 1/4 the security, does it come out even?
Actually, I'm not surprised at the greater simplicity for a simple app. The question is, is .Net going to scale? ASPs are simpler too, but they're not well-suited for enterprise-scale web projects.
Equally to the point: Can you really count on Microsoft not sucking you into a situation where the app only works its best when the client's running IE under Windows?

I will second you! The comparisons must be biased 'coz gotdotnet.com is run by M$.
Also I should admit that the strength in .NET is its simplicity and speediness for a app.
