This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant.

Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.
The purchase of Sun, and thus their Java assets, by Oracle introduced uncertainty regarding the future of Java. This uncertainty continues despite the recent announcements of Oracle’s Java roadmap, which had both encouraging and worrying aspects. As a result we continue to highlight the issue. We recommend monitoring the situation rather than any immediate actions to move off the platform.

As we have discussed previously, the Java language appears to be moving slowly as the Java community waits for Java 7. Having waited for new language features to surface for almost 3 years, the Java community has begun to innovate in new languages that run on the Java Virtual Machine, languages such as Groovy, JRuby, Scala and Clojure. With the increase in number of languages available on the JVM, we expect enterprises to begin to assess the suitability of reducing the amount of Java specific code developed in their enterprise applications in favor of these newer languages. This is not to say that enterprises should outright abandon Java as a programming language, we do however suggest that you look for alternatives that may be more fi t for purpose in the area that new development is taking place.
