Java Survey Results
Replay Solutions today released the results from their annual Java technology survey. This year, over 1,000 Java developers and enterprise architects responded with some interesting results. Select questions from the survey include:
- Which Java EE App Servers will you deploy in 2010? - What is the most important Java EE IDE in 2010? - Will you increase Java deployments on virtual machines in 2010? - Will you deploy Java to the cloud in 2010? - What cloud technologies will you use in 2010? - Which operating systems will you deploy Java on in 2010? - Which JVMs will you deploy in 2010? - What Java EE Frameworks and Components will you use in 2010?
Here are some of the interesting results:
- Java Developers Are Surprisingly Interested in Cloud Computing: 36% said they will either test or deploy parts of their infrastructure to the cloud in 2010. 35% expect to more than double virtual machine deployments in 2010.
- Java EE App Servers (more than one selection allowed): 57% of respondents chose Apache Tomcat 37% chose WebSphere 26% chose JBoss 22% chose WebLogic
- Java Platforms: 57% of respondents said they expect to run Java applications on Windows 35% chose Red Hat or CentOS 18% on Solaris.
- Java EE IDEs: 66% of respondents said the Eclipse IDE was still the most important Java EE IDE. 17% chose NetBeans 12% chose JDeveloper
It's interesting to note that Oracle, now the owner of the Java platform, consistently ranked at the bottom--if at all--in these results for its own products. The full results of the survey are available at here.
