Java did not appear in 2001 ....
It first appeared in 2005. This year is the 20th anniversary of Java.

Re: Java and Web Base Development
Java has a lot of adopters, and it is probably not going away soon.  I would like to see the Oracle folks hard-EOL the versions of Java, as apps that use it get more unsafe with age, and they are kept, in some cases, for a very long time.

WORSA
In the 90's, we used to call it Write Once Run Slow Anywhere. My main gripe with java is how verbose it is compared to other options. A secondary one is that it seems like one needs about 17 different frameworks to even start building anything.

Having said all that, I actually like Java quite a bit. With its use in mobile and IoT, its definitely not going away any time soon. This coming modularity will bear watching.

Love these programmer-centric articles lately!

Plugin Shmuggin - Java's Sweet Spot is in Backend/Server Apps
The original intent for Java was as an applet technology for the browser, but those apps have played a minor role in the use of Java as a programming language.  Developers have for a long time moved way beyond that and toward web applications - where the java application is deployed in an appserver such as Tomcat, JBoss, among many others.  Using frameworks such as Struts, Spring, and Hibernate, give developers great flexibility when designing scalable applications.   Java code for non-trivial applications lends itself to well organized packages. 

I have routinely developed enterprise applications on Windows platforms and easily - without code changes - deployed the same applicaiton on Linux or other OS platforms.

Java and Web Base Development
Very interest review of Java 7.  As someone who is in the process of learning Java, I have to sometimes wonder if it will work as a efficient solution for web based app development  

I have since decided to concentrate on HTML 5 for web based mobile app development but it is good to know that even though Window 10 will not support it in the browser - there are tons of useful applications for Java and still reason to invest the time in learning the language as well.
