At first I was surprised:
The newest version of Tomcat was just plain broken. (...)
Tomcatâ€™s documentation is virtually unusable(...)
Some other open-source source code that Iâ€™ve seen is equally badâ€”Hibernate is a mess, for exampleâ€”and many commercial projects arenâ€™t much better (much of the Java library code is a case in point).
In all fairness, some open-source projects donâ€™t have many of these problems, but those projects tend to have started life as commercial software that was released to the open-source community.Since I've never really had problems with Tomcat and being a "open source" freak... I don't really agree with him, BUT he has some points and (even) open source projects aren't perfect (actually the perfect project is an utopia) and providing the right documentation (enough/not too much) is hard.
And then I realize I knew this guy from javaworld articles:
He likes provocation... (just like tirsen).
Funny to see that some people are like that...
