This week's book giveaways are in the Jython/Python and Object-Oriented programming forums. We're giving away four copies each of Machine Learning for Business: Using Amazon SageMaker and Jupyter and Object Design Style Guide and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
I was looking at the features of "Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8" and in the UML support feature they said that this IDE provides source code synchronization with the model.It does this without using markers or tagging in the source code.It says, using them will reduce the productivity.
I just want to know the reason for this.How can they reduce the productivity? It says as if some IDEs use that procedure. Are there any IDEs which follow that procedure?
Visual Age for Java put in lots of code that said "DO NOT MODIFY THIS CODE" so it could keep its text and graphical views in sync. The IDE could usually protect it in the editor, but of course could not protect it in an external text editor. I don't know about the effect on productivity but it couldn't have been positive to have to read by gobs of ugly code you weren't supposed to be looking at or occasionally break some of it. We should sunset VAJ off our team by year end if all goes well!
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
