Example text

How does the user react to your program? Does he or she try to find a command in the wrong place? Perhaps you ought to move the command, or provide alternative access ways. Does the user have a totally wrong mental model of what's happening? If so, perhaps the conceptual model should be made more visible. Perhaps you should redesign your program around a different conceptual model. Usability testing is best done with a crude prototype on paper, even. If you invest much time and effort in a prototype, it becomes your baby.

Garbage collection is fine, but what about objects that encapsulate files, network connections, window handles, or other system resources? You're forced to create methods for explicit destruction, and miss the beauty of C++ stack unwinding. Another hole is the lack of a preprocessor. I know that this lack is a result of a conscious decision, and I even understand the rationale behind it; I merely happen to disagree. You don't deny grown men beef merely because it's unfit food for babies. In spite of these and other holes (lack of const, for example), Java is a well-designed language with, I believe, a substantial role to play.

A few years ago, I was on a project where we wrote the hard parts in C, using VB as glue to stick all the parts together. Most of the programmers were inexperienced, you see, so the management felt that this was the best way. It did (of course) turn on us with a vengeance. VB's ease of use does not turn amateurs into professional programmers; it is no substitute for actual knowledge and experience. The Java language definition is superb in spots, but it does have holes. One hole is the lack of destructors.
