I'm an author of several FOSS projects:

  • CppCMS - High performance, MVC C++ Web Development Framework.
  • Boost.Locale - High quality localization tools for C++ (currently waits for review for Boost)
  • BiDiTeX - bidirectional support of Hebrew in LaTeX.

@Klaim - just for the record... CppCMS does Unicode much better than Boost :-) - it is much more consistent

Most of the issues aren't that big anyway... Yes, Java is faster to compile... But it takes forever to restart tomcat/jetty in comparison with CppCMS for example - so I don't see big drawback in comparison with popular technologies. Unicode? CppCMS that brought Boost.Locale is actually very good place to use Unicode :-) and finally the cross platform portability... Ok... You need to recompile... Not a big deal.

@Klaim - not "standard ABI" problems are quite in past. Under Linux clang, gcc and intel compilers are ABI compatible and the generated libraries/executables are compatible. Same for Windows Intel and MSVC compatibility

I suggest to take a look on CppCMS.

See, that is why frameworks like C++ help as out of all the points you noted... it provides all of them :-)
