When you say that Ktor is really fast (and I presume you mean is really faster than Spring / Java), do you mean to say that Kotlin generates a more efficient bytecode with respect to classic Java , or that it requires much less code to do the same thing ?
I'm asking that for this simple reason. Kotlin attracted me from day zero, mainly for the claim that it could be compiled to work in a JVM, as a native executable, or to target browser. And personally, I think that being able to create a multitarget compiled code is a great feature for a programming language.
By the way, there's nothing wrong being a fan of this or that platform / language, so any enthusiasm is really welcome !!
yeah faster to write, deploy.
Claude Moore wrote:Ciao Giovanni,
I'm not a Ktor user but I think that Spring will rule the Java world for a long time to come. Mainly for its completeness and because, differently from old fashioned Java EE, Spring is very quick in embracing new technologies and frameworks. Moreover, you can use Spring and Kotlin together, so I would guess that Ktor could be offered as an option for Spring developers, instead of replacing Spring.

The length of time that an employee is contracted with a client varies considerably. My contract with one client ended and I'm looking for a new client. If I cannot find work as a developer, what do you think about getting a business analyst role or a position in QA? I wouldn't mind working in those roles if I could not find a developer position. What would clients think of those who switch to a business analyst or QA role from a development role and then back again to a development role?

Like your quote, BTW. Very Zen. :-)
Winston Gutkowski wrote:Simple answer: No.
An "if" statement in Java is equivalent to a 'if' or 'branch' statement in the lower-level language that Java has been compiled into. If you're really interested, there are probably specifications for how the JVM expects it to behave, but basically an "IF" is an"IF".
It's about the simplest computer instruction there is.
