Mark Dixon, co-founder and CTO of Teamstudio, put out a <A HREF="http://www.teamstudio.com/">cautionary statement in response</A> to IBM's declaration that software developers learn Java or risk being left behind. "IBM is telling developers that they have to learn Java now," explained Dixon. "With all the hype WebSphere is getting, it's very easy to assume that everyone else's migration is well under way, and, if you don't hurry, then you'll be left at a competitive disadvantage. Nothing could be further from the truth. It's a stressful time to be a Notes developer."
