Likelihood to Recommend

NativeScript

I would recommend for building native apps for iOS or Android if 1) the developers come from a web dev background; 2) the company can't afford separate teams for Android and iOS; 3) the team wants to use Vue.js.
I would not recommend if the app needs a web version and is simple enough to be a hybrid app.

Oracle Java SE Subscription

Oracle Java SE Subscription is well suited, for example, if you are looking to fine-tune garbage collections options and are looking for a knowledge base. Or if you want to update timezone data and need an example of how to do it.

Pros

NativeScript

  • NativeScript allows our front-end developers to build actually native mobile apps with the javascript we already know well.
  • It is very quick to get started using NativeScript. We can generally onboard a new developer into the project in just a day or two.
  • The open source community surrounding NativeScript allows our team to find solutions to open issues quickly, as well as give back by fixing some issues ourselves. Work can progress quicker with the plugins other developers have already built.

Oracle Java SE Subscription

  • Strong object-orientation language and clear project structure.
  • Once developed, it is easy to deploy anywhere, great portability and re-usability.
  • Platform independent. Applications made on Java can be run on all the modern OS platforms. No separate tweak or development is required by OS.

Cons

NativeScript

  • Nativescript runs everything on a single thread. i.e., the UI thread. If you want to offload some processing, you have to use web workers. This experience can be improved in the future releases.
  • Currently NativeScript only have hot reload when you change the UI file or Css file. There is no hot reload when you change Js/Ts file, unlike Google's Flutter. This is also something which NativeScript will get in the future releases.
  • In current version of NativeScript, there is no livesync when building with webpack. This feature will be added with NativeScript 4.x. (an RC version for 4.x is already available)

Oracle Java SE Subscription

  • AMC Usage details hard to Decipher and Categorize
  • AMC JRE Upgrades have very limited Scheduling of Deployments, should be more like SCCM. Where you know exactly when deployments are going out. Not just when the Agent decides to check in.
  • Cost is WAY too high

The hybrid is ok but native is better for performance and the right use case I want to go for is the performance without dealing with too many development tools.

Support Rating

NativeScript

NativeScript 1.1
Based on 2 answers
My focus has been, and must remain, with obtaining support from web resources over that of paid support programs. Many companies, including those of government agencies, do not have a budget sufficient for paying large sums of money to other organizations to answer questions. Even in cases where an organization did purchase support programs, developers often found that the delays in obtaining responses to development issues was excessive. I give NativeScript the lowest possible rating, due to the fact that their website content is severely outdated and of little use to a developer in a crunch. The NativeScript environment may be far better than I have been able to report, but held back from excelling due to poor support content. Being that I am often asked to push the boundaries in various areas, improper documentation is highly detrimental to a development team, and thuss a review. I would be more than happy to improve this review as the content of the support documentation provided by the NativeScript team makes its way to their website in the form of real-world examples which are applicable to all versions, or at least the most recent versions, of their product.

Staff seems to be pretty quick to answer and address questions that get posted to the Support page. Also, they respond as well when tickets get escalated. Lastly, they will keep you informed, and check back with you as you live tickets open that are still in the works

Alternatives Considered

NativeScript

We have previously evaluated Xamarin, and the time it took us to get started, install all of the software, license it, learn Xamarin, and create a app that runs and debugs on connected mobile devices was painful. With NativeScript and the Playground, we're able to get started fast - in less than 5 minutes, and be running a mobile app on multiple connected devices. Furthermore, we could make changes and see live changes on the mobile apps.

Oracle Java SE Subscription

Besides Oracle Java SE Subscription, which is a paid subscription, we were looking for other free Java development kits out there like OpenJDK. I'm helping another small business, in addition to my main job, and they don't have a lot of EC2/Virtual machines. They are using other free alternatives out there at the moment.

Return on Investment

NativeScript

  • One of the projects we had to build was a rewrite of an existing mobile application. We could acomplish the complete rewrite in about a month along with general improvements and a couple additions.
  • More and more clients are specifically looking for NativeScript developers, and since we are focused on NativeScript we've had an influx of new clients asking for quotes.

Oracle Java SE Subscription

  • Support from Oracle even after end of public updates has been really helpful in supporting our clients with existing applications on older versions.
  • Access to customer support in different languages at virtually all the time has enabled us to provide great support for our clients and has drastically reduced downtime.
  • Incremental updates makes the systems more robust as we don't need to wait for next release to patch an issue.
