The evolution of the Java language is essentially over

Markus Eisele
One of my favourite comments on this years JavaOne comes from Cay Horstmann. He is the author of Core Java (Sun Microsystems Press 1996-2004), Enterprise Java for Elvis (Sun Microsystems Press, to appear), and co-author of Core JSF (Sun Microsystems Press 2004)an a professor of computer science at San Jose State University. He is a computer science series editor at Prentice-Hall and a frequent speaker at computer industry conferences. For four years, Cay was VP and CTO of an Internet startup that went from 3 people in a tiny office to a public company.

The evolution of the Java language is essentially over. There may be a few minor tweaks on the way, but if you are pining for closures, properties, or metaclasses, look elsewhere. Scala is a great choice today, and Groovy could be good if they'd just start writing a language spec. (Cay Horstmann)
