The webOS HP acquired with the purchase of a smartphone manufacturer Palm in 2010. Currently the system is for use in smartphones, but HP plans to impose it in other devices, incl. PCs.

RedHat develops alternative of Java

Linux company Red Hat creates a new programming language for the Java virtual machine (JVM). The project aims to overcome the inherent limitations of Java, and developers to gain more simplicity and convenience. The project codenamed Ceylon was first introduced by the lead developer Gavin King QCon conference in China. And some analysts have called the new language “killer” of Java. King himself, however, distinguish it from such a definition.

Ceylon is Java, a new programming language that borrows features from Java, explains Gavin King. The language is being developed by proponents of Java, but not his “blind” followers. Java will not die and there is hardly anything that can kill, is the King. Ceylon is called to give developers what they want, but do not get from Java. For example, many disappointments dreaded outdated library of classes that make Java SE SDK collection of puzzles, King said. Therefore, the creation of quality SDK is a major task of the new project. Another priority of Ceylon is the development of Java-like language for describing user interfaces and data structures using a hierarchical syntax safe. Intrinsic link with the Java XML, which is the only way to describe the user interface is a serious problem of language and constant source of problems for developers, adds King.
