Change the Technology

by mingoto

Writer Isaac Asimov once said that ‘the only constant is change’. That isn’t just a phrase in the software industry, it is an absolute fact. Once, there was a day when Corba was king but it was usurped by Web Services. Even within the world of Web Services, that used to be all about SOAP but now it’s REST style services which are much more popular today. Now somethings will obviously hang around a bit longer than others. Relational databases have been around 40 years and aren’t going to be kicked out by NoSql just yet. The HTTP protocol has been atversion 1.1 since 1999 and has helped us use a thing called the Internet. As for Java well that has been a pretty popular computer programming language for the last decade and a half.
