C1 is great for creating custom reports. We have client apps where we've created some fairly complicated reports such as invoices and real estate inspections. We also use the True DBGrid in many of our apps since it is so customizable. Its grouping and filtering features are very nice and can provide summary counts and totals at the bottom or right side of the grid that are very handy.

Oracle Java SE

  • Very Stable SDK which helps development and deployment smoothly
  • Addresses fatal errors / crashes as compared to Open JDK
  • Continuous release model by addressing bugs, improvements in every release
  • For Enterprise products it is big benefit to go with Oracle Java SE
  • Cipher Security support

Pros

ComponentOne

  • The True DBGrid control is nice for showing parent/child relationships and being able to drill down and show the child data. It also is nice for showing summary totals.
  • The report engine is great for building custom reports for Win Forms or web apps. It can do everything that Crystal Reports can do.
  • They have a good selection of controls that can do just about anything you can imagine.

Oracle Java SE

  • Plenty support built into the tool and IDE like Maven, Ant, Eclipse, IntelliJ.
  • Strong object-orientation language and clear project structure.
  • Wrapper underlines hardware and memory management so the developers can focus on business and implementation.
  • It offers a huge library and framework support from third-parties and the community.

Cons

ComponentOne

  • Sometimes it is difficult to figure out where things are in the properties of controls since there are so many things you can drill down into.
  • I find myself using Bing or Google a lot to look up how to do something. Some things are not very intuitive.
  • Of course, I would always like the price to be cheaper. The high price has caused us to not keep current and have the latest version.

Oracle Java SE

  • No ability to automatically clean up resources such as via destructors in C++. End users must explicitly invoke a method (e.g. close, dispose) to ensure resources are freed in a timely manner.
  • Garbage collection can introduce pauses at runtime (although this is improving)
  • Memory leaks are sometimes difficult to find due to automatic garbage collection

The language is fluent and has good support from a number of open source and commercial IDEs. Language features are added every 6 months, although long-term service releases are only available every 3 years. It would be nice if some of the older APIs were depreciated with more pressure to move to the new replacement APIs (e.g. File vs. Path), but transitions to new features are generally well implemented.

Java is such a mature product at this point that there is little support from the vendor that is needed. Various sources on the internet, and especially StackOverflow, provide a wealth of knowledge and advice. Areas that may benefit from support is when dealing with complex multithreading issues and security libraries.

Alternatives Considered

ComponentOne

We have been in business since 1992, so we have used many different products over the years. The two other products we've primary used that are similar to ComponentOne, are Infragistics and Crystal Reports. Infragistics has a vast array of controls similar to ComponentOne. We use both to be honest and I'm not sure which one I would pick over the other. I guess that would depend on what you're trying to accomplish and if one had some control or capability that the other didn't. ComponentOne does have the reporting capabilities, where Infragistics does not.

We had to stick with Java SE due to some of our other services being already written in Java. For the past couple months, we have been experimenting with Python and comparing its level of security and performance. From our experience, Python has fewer security capabilities, but has a much faster performance compared to Java.

Return on Investment

ComponentOne

  • ComponentOne allows us to add additional features to our apps that wouldn't be found in apps written with just Visual Studio itself. That allows our clients to get more creative in their requirements, which in turn, means more work and billable hours for us!
  • Our apps appear more professional when using ComponentOne which helps us get projects for new clients.
  • ComponentOne also helps us to save clients some money since we are not having to develop things that it can do from scratch.

Oracle Java SE

  • We're able to deploy new instances of our application on new hardware setups without any hiccups or additional tweaks thanks to the use of the Java VM.
  • Many colleagues are familiar with Java, either from school, or previous employment since it's so widely used. They're able to get up to speed and being productive on our team very quickly.
