Let’s take a few things from this blog post on “Code Monkeyism” and discuss: “Searching for java is dead with Google, one gets Results 1 – 10 of about 8,620,000 for java is dead. Dead indeed. Or at least lots of people think it is or will die 2009.” OK, so, let’s see what other things we can search for on google and get more results than that: * “ruby is dead” – 9,500,000 * “c is dead” - 207,000,000 * “obama is dead” – 113,000,000 * “free range chickens” – 37,500,000 If that was supposed to convince me of something you are sadly mistaken.

Good post... I do think Java the language will (very) slowly phase out but JVM and JDK libraries will probably dominate for decade if not longer. The entire enterprise runtime environment is roughly divided between .NET CLR and JVM and this is not changing for years and years to come.
