Maybe that’s true, but the fact that many people use JAVA or buy a certain book or do whatever doesn’t mean that this has something to do with quality. More often it’s the other way around…
I really don’t know why they don’t create at least some kind of backward compatibility. Maybe they are not smart enough…
Like in D7? Sorry, couldn't resist
In Lazarus the editor bookmarks are global for all files, not local for each file like in Delphi.
Just recently I used Java class files (I don’t have the *.java files any more) in a new program. Those original class files were written and compiled around 2002-2004, and they still worked with my program compiled in 2017, using the latest JDK!!
I simply posted about Java as a joke.
That's nearly a show-stopper level of annoying.
Anyone know how to fix this?
Symlink handling has improved in trunk. See: http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=31260Please test and report back.
That may be a little exaggerated.
I can’t remember the last time I used a program that requires JAVA RUNTIME,
I just hate this never-ending C++/DotNet-PackageInstallBullshit.
I hate it when I see a nice program and that program needs DotNet 4.5 for example… Then I always think “Hey why can’t you use OBJECT PASCAL or FREE PASCAL or maybe C…”
Quote from: RAW on July 12, 1985, 11:54:17 pmI can’t remember the last time I used a program that requires JAVA RUNTIME,I actually use a lot of Java based programs here. UMLet, jEdit, Eclipse IDE, trolCommander etc. Installing the JRE (actually the JDK - just in case) is one of the first things I do after a new OS install.
QuoteI just hate this never-ending C++/DotNet-PackageInstallBullshit.DotNet is totally pointless for me. It’s a bad ripoff of Java, since SUN sued Microsoft all that years ago.
Am i missing something, or should i make a bug report for this?
My issue with Java for years has been memory consumption. But these days I made peace with that. What modern PC doesn’t come standard with 8GB or RAM anyways? My desktop system has 32GB RAM and my laptop has 16GB RAM.
This debugger issue seems different from the issue in bug tracker. I think it should be reported.
Java fixed only in 1.5 and after.
…but for small and medium biz, I think the .NET eco system is actually better
Java is terrible!The syntax is verbose, the libraries huge, ..
I am a Linux guy, and I would actually reach for .NET before reaching for Java.
