why i said every java developer need to know about this is because some big organisations started to use this tool and they are having separate team to work with that tool.. they got positive result with this tool.. so i guessed in future some more organisations may use this tool since the development time is very less if we use this.

Let me get this straight: Yesterday you knew nothing about this at all, and as of today you've identified it as an upcoming trend? What happened?

There's a lot of mystery and hype surrounding Pega and other similar platforms. It's essentially a platform for describing business processes and workflow in a way that the descriptions get turned more-or-less directly into software, or at least turned into requirements that have a fighting chance of getting through the translation into software. Pretty much the principal user of a system like this is the $100 million+ company, it's in widespread use in banking and finance. It's used in a whole lot of scenarios where there are complicated business rules (the kind of rules which if not communicated properly can end up with executives going to jail), and it's used as a tool for all kinds of analytics where the workflow descriptions must be done by people with domain specific knowledge. It's actually pretty neat stuff, but its value isn't apparent to people who don't have the kinds of problems addressed by this type of tool.
Pega is a Business Process Management tool. It is developed on Java and uses OOP and java concepts. And the big advantage is we don't have to have to build the system from the scratch like any conventional programming. It is becoming popular because of that, though most conventional programmers would disagree. And also because of it is agile way, Flexibility,and being extensible.
PRPC or PEGA Rules Process Commander is not a language/compiler etc. Its a BPM tool. It is used as a work flow processing tool in which you build applications and deploy them as web services or just intranet. This tool is used mostly in Finance/Banking/Health care industry where there is a need of streamlined process flow. The process flow may consist of human intervention steps(UI forms - Manual Tasks) or Straight through processing steps(WebServices, MQ, JAVA invocation etc). This tool provides ready made frame work which consists of a process monitoring application in which a user logs in and is able to see tasks that are assigned to him and can also see dashboards/reports and also many administrative tasks. There are also notifications/integration as well as SLA escalations built in the tool. This tool falls in niche category because of the licensing cost and also the expertise and certified developers needed to develop and design an application in PEGA. Big banks and Health care establishments use PEGA for their internal functioning. E.g. Credit Risk analysis of a particular financial entity by a bank. Maintaining life cycle of a Drug undergoing research and development.
