Java's Bright Future
With so much controversy surrounding Java, what does the future hold for the language? As Sellers sees it, Java has a bright future, especially in the hands of Oracle. It's still the world's most popular language and it's everywhere, from desktops to laptops to computers to data center servers to mobile devices to TVs and so on.
"Java truly is the foundational 'mortar' across all computing platforms, from thin clients to big enterprise servers. Oracle, in close partnership with the Java Community Process, has laid out an aggressive and compelling roadmap with Java 8 and Java 9 and beyond which will serve to enable Java's continued dominance," Sellers said. "It is now hard to find a next-generation architecture or development initiative within enterprise and developers that does not utilize Java in some way, shape or form."
