Ok, so... involuntarily switched to a .NET project about 1.5 yrs ago, not so happy w/the architecture I see in the Windows world (business logic either in button click handlers or in the database, no object layer), wondering if I can come back to Java, and I see...
theserverside.com seems kinda dead.
this forum has only the occasional job posting (is it good that the forum isn't drowning under job postings? maybe)
So, I'm wondering: whither Java? Still a viable language? Still something worth building a career on? Are new projects being started in Java? Or should I sigh a deep sigh and just accept that Microsoft has won and drag myself back to the land of if-Microsoft-didn't-invent-it-it's-not-worth-knowing?
