Google trends proves: Java is doomed

Google trends is a nice idea, and I had to apply it adhoc to Java, Ruby, Python and C#. Interesting results, I can see a decline in Java! We’re doomed :-)

And the Rails evangelists jump in and present this. Probably people would search for that or even that because Rails mostly doesn’t find RoR though. All others ignore the quabble and use Jetty or Grails.

For fun try this.

Update: Searching for Web 2.0 creates a nice graph and close to my heart: wiki.

Is werx dead?

Werx is a type safe intra-application message bus in Java. I’ve been a happy werx user for a while, but when I headed back to the werx website the developers obvisously haven’t renewed their domain (downloads can be still found on the werx sf website;). The developers aren’t answering questions, so is the project dead?
