We just received word about the results from the RAD race at JavaPolis 2005. 12 teams competed against each other, each bringing its favourite technology stack.
It is a realistic JAVA competition, meaning that:
- A realistic and detailed business case is to be realized
- By teams of 2 developers in 12 hours (from 9 a.m. til 9 p.m.)
- In verifiable conditions of time and place and without any (external) help
- There are no limitations on the software and hardware that can be used
The jury nominated three winning teams. All three of them used Oracle 10g JDeveloper. The winning teams were (in alphabetical order):
- Logica CMG
Using Oracle JDeveloper 10g 10.1.2 IDE, Struts, JSP, Oracle ADF Framework, and Oracle JHeadstart
Using Oracle JDeveloper 10g 10.1.3 IDE, JavaServer Faces, Oracle ADF Framework
Using Oracle JDeveloper 10g 10.1.2 IDE and an in-house framework
More details on the teams’ achievements and jury considerations will be posted on the JavaPolis WIKI.
Congratulations obviously to Steve and Duncan for an excellent achievement – although given their toolset… Also kudos to the JHeadstart team for enabling Logica CMG to also win the competition. I wonder why Steve and Duncan did not use JHeadstart as well. Would that have been like taking drugs to enhance your performance?
