Comparisons with Eclipse can be misleading, but IBM Rational's Jazz server-side software development platform will often be compared to the Eclipse IDE. While some viewers see a slow uptake, IBM sees reasonable adoption for Jazz versus its predecessor, Eclipse.
"Where we are in terms of Jazz one year later-- in terms of adoption, the number of products, and the number of companies involved-- is actually ahead of where Eclipse was on the year after it was launched," said Scott Hebner, Marketing and Strategy Vice President for IBM's Rational Software, at a recent event in Orlando, Florida.
The number of products released on Jazz is substantially higher than the number of products released for Eclipse over the same timeframe. "We have now five products built from the bottom up on Jazz. In the first year [after Eclipse was released] we had maybe one product," said Hebner.
Hebner believes that products could drive the continued growth of Jazz. Said Hebner: "The more products, the more people jump on board. With the open standards element [of Jazz] I would expect it to grow."

Organizations are always looking for opportunities to tune their architecture. To achieve massive scalability, many organizations have turned to various NoSQL solutions. But to blend performance with that scalability, organizations need to start incorporating solid state drives as well.
More and more organizations are using NoSQL to solve various data persistence problems. But sometimes the rush to use a new technology can cause problems. Here are three common NoSQL mistakes adopters of the technology will want to avoid.
While relational technologies have been around for a while, NoSQL solutions have proven themselves out time and time again. Perhaps it's time to start seriously thinking about integrating a NoSQL solution into your next enterprise application.
