SD Times: NET Advancing Quickly on J2EE But research shows Java maintains strong position "In the survey, 78 percent of respondents indicated that they are currently developing for a Microsoft platform, with 28.6 percent stating that they are actively developing specifically for .NET or ASP.NET, Microsoft’s application server for the .NET platform. When asked about their plans for new applications being developed over the next 12 months, 72.5 percent said they would be developing for a Microsoft platform, only a small increase, while the .NET/ASP.NET planned usage for the next year nearly doubled, to 52.6 percent. ... By comparison, 48.8 percent of respondents indicated that they are currently developing apps for either Java 2 Standard Edition or Java 2 Enterprise Edition, and 51.8 percent said that they expect to be building new apps for J2SE or J2EE within the next year. That’s what you would call a statistical tie."
