jkaster:doychin: "How much of these Core SDP things will benefit small teams because roles can be defined verry easy in big teams but in small they overlap." - Pat: Borland lives in three markets. The point products market is one, where people are looking for specific technology tools (like UML tools). There is also integrated ALM, where customers buy sets of our technology and also integrate with competing products. CoreSDP is more of a platform of the overall Borland product set for whatever process the customer wants to follow.



jkaster:doychin: "Moving to Eclipse layer will there be migration of code centric technologies from JBuilder?" - Pat: We'll be providing more details as we go forward, but we intend to move JBuilder functionality over to Eclipse



jkaster:jkaster: "Do you think that techniques like Aspects for Java will become a mainstream part of Java?" - Pat: I actually thinks Aspects are fundamental.



jkaster:jkaster: "Does Java have an apparent advantage at Grid computing? What role will it play in Sunbs vision of utility computing?" - Pat: BEA announced the JRocket JVM, so that's one interesting capability



jkaster:doychin: "What will be after SDP? Where you think the future of software development will be?" - Pat: SDP is a pretty big wedge. The sky's the limit in how we make process-centric capabilities part of the solution, and visual design for all roles in an organization.
