environment, so it lets for a developer to [have] entree to tools," said Danu Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions. "It also at the same clip gives them a topographic point to deploy their applications without having to worry," about run-time choices
and operational issues," he said. Alice Paul Krill is editor at big at InfoWorld. Continued1 | | »
