In this Book Club forum, we'll be discussing the controversial new book Beyond Java by Bruce Tate.
Are Java's best days coming to an end? Has it left too many developers behind with its focus on high-end enterprise computing? And if not Java, then what are we supposed to use? These are the kinds of questions to kick around as we discuss the book, and we hope you'll bring your own insights and ideas to the discussion.
If you want to "try before you buy", you can check out the online version of Beyond Java as part of the Safari Bookshelf -- http://safari.java.net/ -- a collection of online books available to java.net members, which offers a 14-day free trial.
