As you can tell from my blog I am a long time Java developer who likes to flirt with dynamic languages. Not surprisingly my two favorite languages at this point are Groovy and Ruby. Therefore, I enjoy working with the Grails and Rails frameworks. After working with Java for so long I was starting to get tunnel vision around a single language. After all, Java is a general-purpose language that can do anything if you bend it enough.

Blah blah blah the same thing as always, Java is legacy, Java is dead. How many years have been Java dead and dynamic languages specially Ruby will take the world? ROFL. All this article and topic is a comedy of puppets.

Now that was a forward thinking blog post. Java will live on thanks to Big Software and exceptional sales people at Oracle et al. Some people don't like exploring what else is out there and learning what other communities are pioneering. That's fine since corporate jobs pay pretty well. No need to think outside the box.
