I am a new comer of computer program especially in java and just got the SCJP certificate.I saw recently posted the subject about "Java is dead",i am so nervous about it,and i am very disappointed to hear this news because i really spent a lot of money and time to study this hot languge,but now i am very very very upset with it .Can anybody who works with java tell us the real market now and future,i mean the real market! Thank you very much for clear me and anyone else who worry about this!
Who has the crystal ball, please look into it, and tell Long the future of Java, please! Just kidding! Dear Long: You cannot change the world and the future, but you can contribute to the future of Java by not spreading rumors. You can change your own attitude toward this kind of things. You can change your own destiny by always keeping a positive attitude. Keep doing what you can do, and not to worry what you cannot do. Best regards! Roseanne
Dear Long, Hey, It's me who posted the 'java is dead' topic. I was misguided by a recruiter about java's death. People on this forum has enlightened me with the real picture. Don't worry, java is not dead. It's certainly the 'in' language. Do not loose heart. ( I was almost in tears when I was told that java is dead, just don't let that happen to you.) Read the complete 'java is dead'post, both in the certification result's forum and ine the job market forum. OK? Take care. Bye, Tualha Khan
Hi Long !!! Don't worry !!! You're in the correct path of your life !!! Java is still Hot & fantastic language.Nobody can beat it !!! Nothing less, most of the software giants like IBM,Oracle,Borland,Etc... are supporting Java .These people will not involve with it ,if Java doesn't have a future !! So be Rgds, Shan.
What I think about this Question is: Only if a programming language doesn't do anything bad/wrong in the program according to its syntax and good style, and it is just what we need to use, why we need to worry whether it's dead or not? I only worry if I have a good/creative idea to use this language and how soon I can develop a project. If Java died now, It's too pity to rise so soon and to drop so no-clue. ------------------ Sun Certified Java Programmer 2
