"It continues to be interesting times for developers. The battles between Java and .NET continue to be fierce, however, other technologies are sneaking into the mix as well," stated Bradley Jones, Executive Editor of EarthWeb.com's Software Development Channel. "Even so, it was not surprising to see a tool that is evolving to support both platforms take top honors in the Development tool of the year - that product being Eclipse," added Jones.
"This year's finalists for Technology of the Year indicate the changes towards standards and the ability to be untied from a specific vendor or machine," stated Rosemarie Graham, Managing Editor, Developer.com.
