Last week I asked if Google were fracturing Java, along the lines of Microsoft's abortive plans to market its own incompatible J++ language in the late '90s. The result was an outpouring of comments to an extent much beyond this blog's usual take, almost all of which dismissed my worries; in fact, most seemed to think that Google's moves with Android and Google App Engine have saved a language that was becoming moribund. "With GWT, GAE, Cloud and Android and everything else that Google is doing it is saving Java from becoming the out-of-fashion enterprise-only language that it was becoming," said one anonymous commentor.
