Hi Sandeep,
I have two questions:
First who are those "many people" ?
Second what do you mean with "java will get it's place again in coming days" ?
Java is much too involved in today's (and tomorrow's) technology to maybe disappear one day. Java has managed to take over many fields, be they client-side or server-side. Java has one (and many other) enormous advantage over other programming languages, Java is EASY TO LEARN for an occasionnal programmer, which is NOT the case with C++, C#, Smalltalk and other OO languages. First because the inventors of Java removed everything that was "impractical" in the C++ syntax. Don't mistake me, I do not say that C++ is a bad language, not at all, C++ is a good language, but C++'s days are compromized by Java, because Java has a second advantage over C++, it is (almost) platform-independent. Platform-independency is very important nowadays.
Believe me, Java is not gonna die and moreover will not lose its place as a challenger against the C++ monster, but one day will be the monster and let C++ take the challenger place! Just thinking about C++ syntax, makes me feel weird, and I know a lot of people who are feeling the same way.
Here are some articles from java.sun.com that leave no doubt concerning the importance Java takes (and will take) in everyday's life:

I am sure java will be back.
Now java is not only core java. J2EE is today backbone of many corporates and has a great potential in time to come.

Back from where, how can you even comment without comparisons? I believe that right now Java is the second most in demand programming language just after C++, anyone got information to the contrary.
