Java hate

2007-06-01 17:53:55.358853+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I hate to turn this place all techie, maybe even though May is over we can bring things back to a little more national masturbation month-ish material, but I have a little Java hate:

cd scarab-0.21
mvn war

Since then, the process "java" has been consuming roughly 99% of the CPU, 49:47.65 minutes. For compiling (why are we compiling Java, anyway?) a stupid web app. At least I hope it's compiling, the Maven status still says:

[INFO] Scanning for projects...

Welcome to hell. If you did not use the Sun JDK, and used Kaffee or one of the many others.. the first issue is probably your JDK.

But I've pulled out my hair figuring out things like the 2:30pm compile of Tomcat works with this version of JDK, but the 1:30pm and 4pm version require a different arcane build of JDK for application XX to work properly.

Sometimes, you can run "javac" on .java / .jsp pages, and the moons align, and it works.. sometimes. well.. some say: Shit Happens Java Web/Tomcat Programmers say Exceptions Occur. Same thing.

I'm trying the deprecated build method with a tool called "ant", and at least it's giving me regular updates (albeit with a boatload of warnings).

Why can't people write their webapps in a real language, like PHP or Perl?
