Java is everywhere in the corporate world. It's the new Cobol. Even when everyone else stops using it there will be billions of lines of code in use that will need to be maintained and billions more that will be created within existing frameworks.

I know someone who works at a megacorp and they invested in Java during the hype years and now they are in too deep to get out.

Even though it is dead on the desktop there are still plenty of Java jobs thanks to enterprise.
