Description
Software frameworks encompass the entire host of design-time
and run-time elements. This discussion will compare the .NET
and J2EE frameworks across this spectrum of elements. Ravi
and Abid recently had a couple of projects which afforded an
opportunity to compare .NET and J2EE side-by-side. They will
share their insights with you.
