Java Sun's groundbreaking programming language vaulted to popularity with Web developers. But now it's losing ground to a raft of upstarts.

i am not sure how much ground it is actualy loosing. especialy with each new release bringing better speed, and stability i find it rather suprising. also 6.0 is going to be a very nice update to java, i dont think java is going ot be loosing ground of any serious mater any time soon.

Actually no. As of "Tiger" Sun switched from the 1.x system to the x system. Hence we've had Java 1, Java 1.1, Java 1.2, Java 1.3, Java 1.4, Java 5 and will soon have Java 6.

They've adopted the same scheme for J2EE as well, the next release is going to be called J2EE 5.

Apparently spelling isn't a valid reason for modding your comment down, so I won't do that. Notice how I wrote "your" comment.

Just to make this more clear, observe the following example:
"Nobody is going to take your comments seriously if you're too lazy to learn elementary school level spelling."

Now onto the meat of my post:
Calling Perl, Python and PHP upstarts is ridiculous.

Yeah, strange that. I always thought the one thing OSNews was lacking was a solid community of spelling and grammar Nazis.

For example, I'm incensed that I can't mod you down for following a colon with a capital letter. Just to make this more clear, observe the following example:

"The meat of my post is this: no-one is going to take your spelling rants seriously if you can't even manage basic grammar".

Sheesh....
