|[jakarta.ee-community] Fwd: [jugs] JVM Ecosystem Report 2018: Results from the largest ever JVM/Java survey!|
It is worth taking a brief moment to look at this. To put these numbers in some perspective, this is the first major survey that does not show an overall decline in Java EE adoption and in fact seems to indicate a mild recovery (about 4-5% compared to previous renditions of the survey). In addition, it shows fairly strong adoption of Java EE 8. Not anything to be ecstatic about but certainly not as worrisome as some of these surveys have been in recent years.
We obviously all still have a lot of hard work ahead of us. Hopefully tangible progress in Jakarta EE can dramatically improve these numbers in the coming years (that is not as hard as it seems. I believe people fill out these surveys based on how they feel rather than necessarily what they actually use). Perhaps it is motivating to know it is not all an uphill battle all the way.
This is obviously just one survey and interpreting all of this in the context of some years is an art, not a science. For a data centric guy like me though, this does say volumes as to where we are and where we could go.
