This is NOT the start of a flame war so treat it as such.
Do We Love Java or What!?
Today I found out that my employer is placing a lot of importance in the SCPJ2 Certification. For all I know I STARTED IT
As Johnny Carson said: "I Did Not Know That!"
And we are NOT a DOT COM!
And as such, we are trying to educate some RPG programmers in Java. As I said before, at least we KNOW them.
My group is still hiring one experienced Java Developer (Contract to permanent).

Any company that does enterprise computing, or contracts to companies that do enterprise computing will likely use java. In fact, I would guess that most "dot.coms" weren't too much into Java, preferring stuff like ASP and other microsoft solutions.
Java is finding widespread use on the intranets of larger companies. The banking industry seems to be getting into Java in a big way (in fact my bank uses servlets for it's online banking). App servers are gaining great use throughout the industry, and therefore Java.
I also suspect that many companies are finding that Java is the way to go for their in-house applications. Development time in Java can be significantly less than say C++, and if there's no real-time signal processing required or if an app can afford a slight speed hit, Java usually makes more sense. I'm also seeing more GUI work done in Java and then integrated with apps that are programmed in other languages. It's much easier to bust out a Swing GUI than it is to use Motif.
There has also been some talk that there is a movement underway to get a lot of the legacy COBOL systems re-written in Java. I don't know if this is true or not, but it sounds good to me.

Hi Jason
I am very happy to hear that Java is being used by your company in a very major way and that Swing is the preferred GUI tool .But tell me how are you solving the speed problem in Swing Applications .Swing gives a very powerful GUI interface but the problem is speed .How is your company addressing this problem .
