This question is for Bear, and the other authors.

I was reading a thread on JavaFX, and they were saying that it's pretty much still-born. Stating that Java on the desktop is dead.

Java is still going to be around for awhile. Correct?

Thanks,
Doug

Java is very strong on the server side of web apps, as well as other server-side uses.

Good. I'm putting a lot of effort into learning it. (Not very far along, yet.)

I'm having fun so far, and I just started a class. I'm aiming at becoming functional, and then getting certified.
