Have you recently come to Java from another language? Are you thinking about leaving Java in favor of some other language? This topic is meant to discuss migrating to or from Java: how to do it, where to go for more information, what effect it will have on your career, etc.

I may well be moving from Java back to C++ - it hasn't taken off for engineering software, and UML2 and semantic web have made any engineering KBS too complex for single engineers to work on, and Fortress and PERC are still too far off being usable to wait for in the short term. At the moment in the UK, there seem to be no interesting Java or metaprogramming engineering software jobs. DSLs may be a way forward, but they mean the implementation language, be it Java, Fortran, C++, Fortress, C# or whatever are less relevent.
