Java EE not suitable for big data, NoSQL dbs, Machine Learning, Data Mining and Statistics. Really?  RSS feed

I watched a primer by Antonio Goncalves on Java EE and he basically stated this. Is this accurate?
In his words: "Data Scienc//e has not entered the Java EE platform yet."
He did qualify this by saying that the good news is that tools which do support such work have ways to at least communicate with your Java EE application.

After a year of study, I know maybe 1/4th of Java... and hearing this is quite a bummer

Mark,
I think he means "raw" Java EE. You need to add open source libraries for big data. For example Hadoop. But we use open source libraries for lots of stuff, so I'm not sure what the big deal is here.

I see. That makes sense. So what you're saying is that a simple import takes care of bringing in "support" for whatever you like! And he may have been comparing Java EE to another language such as Python or R? Perhaps those languages contain core libraries which are more suited to these fields?

Not quite; you have to download a .jar and add it to your CLASSPATH. Or something like that. Another one line to write.

Ah yes As the import points to a location, after all.
