comment Finding developers for collaboration in enterprise open-source project
I am still confused about what you mean. My project is open-source, it's published on Github where all information about it is available and website is on its way. Do you say that I should post information about it here or what?

comment Finding developers for collaboration in enterprise open-source project
Why? I specifically omitted all details about what exactly my projects is, what technology I use because my question is not just specifically about my project but about a range of projects (enterprise, small users base, non-IT customers) that I described in the question.

I don't understand who you mean by others? Target audience, peer developers? I am not asking help with project marketing, I try to understand where would developers come from to the kind of project I described.

comment How will the new development of Java influence its interoperability with languages like Scala and Clojure?
@Giorgio, He just speaks in favor of 'function types', however that's all there is to it. The current draft of the Lambda project clearly states that a lambda is an object, and I think they have already passed the point, when this statement could still be subject to a change.

@Giorgio, also if you want to know more about lambda-related changes in Java 8 and forces that drive these changes, I recommend you to read this fascinating and detailed overview of the Lambda project.

@Giorgio In Java 8 a lambda expression is a language-level shortcut to create an instance of interface that declares a single method and which is deferred by context. So when a Java 8 method returns a lambda, it actually returns an instance of interface which is declared as the method's return type. As of Scala 2.9.1, the return type is going to be simply an instance of some interface say (Runnable or Comparator) which you can not treat as a Scala lambda, unless you or future releases of Scala libary introduce an implicit conversion from that interface to Scala lambda type.

comment Is it possible to compile Java into machine code? (Not bytecode)
You can force "os.name" system property by using special arguments for JVM: java -Dos.name=MacOS.

comment Should package names be singular or plural?
The very link you provided shows an exception to this rule. beans is plural, however java.beans contains all kind classes related to JavaBeans.

comment What came first, the compiler, or the source?
@Konrad, this actually a matter of definition. With your definition, my answer is wrong, with mine - yours.

@EIYusubov What kind of trial/evaluation do you mean, if the option 3 is to go open/free?

@David I am new here. I might be wrong. But I feel like questions that are preferred as those that require synthesizing information from different sources. Cross posting Wikipedia just engages people to be lazy and to ask simplest questions instead of doing research.

@David Honestly, it will take you 3-5 minutes to find the answers to your questions in Wikipedia by just googling them. I don't see any reasons for copying Wikipedia here.

@IAbstract Binary still can not be source code by definition for it's not compiled for some target platform. It's directly executed by the target platform.

@Joachim By definition, source code is human-readable text that is translated by the compiler into machine code. Machine code itself therefore is not source code.

Thanks for answer! If publishing is not enough to attract to developers, what is the right way to do it?

comment Should I make my project free software?
Thanks for the answer. Perhaps, you are right and I don't think quite objective. Do you have any links on the general guidelines of going free and so on?

Yes, this is what all those go-free-software sites offer for raising money :) The only bad thing I see about is that it might be difficult for me to find time during the school year.
