John Andrews Reveals Java Development Insights at JavaOne
SANTA CRUZ, CA, June 29, 2005 - Java users are more likely to make use of open source software than non-Java users. Eighty percent of heavy Java users (using Java more than 50% of the time) and 73% of light Java users (less than 50% of the time) use open source software for development compared to less than 45% of non-Java developers. In addition, Java users have more confidence in Linux for mission critical applications with 80% having enough confidence to use it in such important deployments compared to less than 50% of non-Java users.
"Microsoft's .NET has established a slight lead in the overall development space over Java but we have found that the situation reverses in the enterprise space with more development taking place in Java than in .NET, 60% to 56% respectively," said Albion Butters, Evans Data’s senior analyst. "These are just some of the Java findings that John Andrews will be presenting at JavaOne. He will also explore security, wireless, web services and, threats to Java’s continued growth."
Evans Data Corporation's Chief Operating Officer, John F. Andrews, will be presenting these and other exclusive Java data points during his Birds of a Feather session: Sorting Out Java Technology Fact from Java Technology Fiction: Trends, Adoption, Migrations, and Key Issues facing the Developer Today and Tomorrow at JavaOne in San Francisco's Moscone Center on Wednesday evening at 7:30 pm in Gateway room 102/103.
Drawing on data from Evans Data Corporation's wide range of surveys focused on the development community, Mr. Andrews will explore and clarify trends, adoption, migrations and key issues facing Java developers today and tomorrow.
