Poll Result: Developers Are More Pessimistic about Java#039;s Future

If the voting in last week#039;s poll are indicative of what the broader Java developer community is thinking (the poll, of course, is not scientific), then the events of 2010 didn#039;t ally much of the concern developers have regarding Java#039;s future.

Consider where we were a year ago: silence about the future was legally imposed on both Sun and Oracle, due to the laws of corporate mergers. Sun had laid off many people, and many more were leaving ahead of the...
