Just wondering if J2EE development is the leader in Enterprise applications today and if so how long do you think it will hold this position?(how fast is .net catching up?)
Thanks,
Chad

Hi Chad,
In fact, I feel Java is not only the leading of Enterprise application, but also the leading of computer programming languages, and algorithms.
You may notice that, in the old days, Java is not very powerful, especially in version 1.0.x and 1.1.x.
When it comes to 1.2.x, it added a lot of packages (utilities) like JAAS, JCE, etc to provide more services.
When it comes to 1.4.x, it provides the "core" concepts of Perl Script (The power of pattern/String matching) by the regular expression class.
It also provides libs for XML processing that provided by Xalan and Xerces.
In J2EE parts, JSP and Servlets form a combination of CGI scripts and dynamic HTML content generations. EJB tries to migrate and then capture the market of COBRA (a traditional distributed application standard).
JSTL tries to perform same tasks as what XSL and XSLT do, and seems in future, we may no longer write HTML codes in JSPs as all of them becos custom tags.
Java also provides J2ME in order to cater for the mobile market!!!
Thus, Java really tries to cover all areas on all aspects of problems that we may see.
I guess .NET is good on MS platform (just like what Windows does), but Java focus on more than various areas. Both of them will survive in future. Just like even MS windows dominates the markets, Unix is still there.
Make any sense?
Nick.

Moving to EJB and other J2EE technologies.
Remember, this forum is for product certification questions only.
