.NET (dotGNU too) Microsoft is leaving Java in the dust, but the company still has room to grow in the developer arena, a key executive said. Speaking at the Microsoft FAM (Financial Analyst Meeting) on July 27 in Redmond, Wash., Bob Muglia, Microsoft's senior vice president of Server and Tools business, said Microsoft's .Net platform has outpaced Java, particularly the Java Enterprise Edition, over the past five years to become the development platform of choice for enterprise development.

From here in the trench

Java is anything but

1.) Dead

2.) Beaten by .NET

3.) Easy to write server applications for.

I hate having to spend time setting up hours worth of boilerplate code just to get a basic web application running. It's pathetic.

I really wish there was a better language / paradigm with tools that would scale as well. There's not. It sucks.

I thought Annotation, a new feature from Java 5 is supposed to help with boilerplate code.
