.NET beats Java

Microsoft is leaving Java in the dust, but the company still has room to grow in the developer arena, a key executive said. Speaking at the Microsoft FAM (Financial Analyst Meeting) on July 27 in Redmond, Wash., Bob Muglia, Microsoft’s senior vice president of Server and Tools business, said Microsoft’s .Net platform has outpaced Java, particularly the Java Enterprise Edition, over the past five years to become the development platform of choice for enterprise development.

“Five years ago we had problems with J2EE [Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition],” Muglia said. However, “We’ve grown from having a quarter of the market to, now, 60 percent,” he said. Microsoft displayed the FAM presentations via Webcast. “J2EE has run its course,” Muglia said.

.. as expected! Along with the .NET Framework 3.0, Java will be far behind.

All of us Microsoft developers have known this all along, but Gartner and friends didn’t want to bite.
Hopefully now they’ll fix their statistics and stop painting the wrong picture to executives.

DotNet rawks and beats the competition hands down in all areas.
