The Future For Java Has Never Been Brighter
In this episode of the TPM podcast show Gennaro Marrazzo, a Technical Development Engineer, explains how the fragmentation of the Java platform is not a weakness, but actually one of its greatest strengths. There are flavours of Java available for everything from front-end UIs to real-time computing and mobile devices. Gennaro sees no clouds in Java’s future now that Oracle has acquired it. After all, it is in Oracle’s interest to keep Java as a vibrant development environment.
The emergence of new platforms like Python and Ruby may erode some of the niches where Java had previously flourished but Gennero believes that Java’s best days are still ahead.
