It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had a “Java is dying” post. But it seems that the idea is really starting to take hold. There’s a story in Business Week this week which covers much of the same ground as we’ve seen before. Previously I’ve only seen this kind of analysis in media aimed at techies. Business Week is read by management. I wonder if having the story covered in places like that will make it a self-fulfilling prophecy.
It’s interesting to see the various parts of the LAMP stack described as “upstarts” – given that most of them have been around at least as long as Java.
