Java is becoming the new Cobol

7 01 2008

“Java is becoming the new Cobol” brave statement from one of the 2007’s top underreported tech stories.

The Story: Java, the oldest new programming language around, is falling out of favor with developers. When it comes to developing the increasingly common rich Internet applications, Java is losing ground to Ruby on Rails, PHP, AJAX and other cool new languages. And there are even reports that Microsoft’s .Net, of all things, is pushing Java out of the enterprise. Makes you wonder whether Sun was smart to change its stock-ticker code to JAVA last summer.

What I found cool is this:

Info-Tech Research Group said its survey of 1,850 businesses found .Net the choice over Java among businesses of all sizes and industries, thanks to its promotion via Visual Studio and SharePoint. Microsoft is driving uptake of the .Net platform at the expense of Java,” says George Goodall, a senior research analyst at Info-Tech.

Well since this is free I’ll just decide if I’m going to take this promotion after I finish reading the book.

Here is the book to those interested:
