What does it say when 2/5 of the 'Java' topics are about Flex? by Alex Blewitt

Flex isn't anything to do with Java. Even the underlying language describes itself as based on ECMAScript, not JavaScript, which in any case doesn't have anything to do with Java. Were there really no worthy other posts published in the Java category?

Old news by Richard Cowin

A Brief Introduction to REST is from 2007

Re: What does it say when 2/5 of the 'Java' topics are about Flex? by Abel Avram
