Scala feels like EJB 2, and other thoughts

This blog entry came to my attention from reading a lambda group post by Ronen Narkis, and this was my reply:


Few days ago I twitted this: "ok, i admit. #Scala actually sucks..."

I didn't read the blog yet (I will though) but if I have to sum up what I think about Scala in one short sentence then it would be: "Yet another lab creation". Exactly like the early version of EJB. It's obvious that it isn't a community driven development. It has nothing to do with developer convenience nor pleasure. It feels like it was created for pure academic purpose. I have tons of other stuff to say about Scala but I don't want to wear you guys out...
