Independence

From slashdot I see that there is once again a new language in town.

Now then, there are a great many Java developers who have preached the benefits of implementing data logic (what they call business logic) in the application so-as to create RDBMS-independent code, including James Gosling who apparantly leads the pack in “not getting” SQL.

Would it not be ironic to see them now pushing all of those “database independent” applications to a new language?

In other news, PL/SQL is coming up to something like 20 years old. Code you wrote then could still be running now.
