Spring is keeping Java alive despite great competition from Go and Rust in the server-side. Android, of course, keeps the JVM alive with Kotlin. I personally like Java's verbose style and I'd say a lot of the hate comes from people who aren't too familiar with Java's idioms. My only real criticism is the amount of memory that the JVM requires to run medium to large applications but this has been improving bit by bit.

 

Yeah, Java is big on Spring.

And yes, a lot of hate for Java comes from people who aren't too familiar with the 'Java looks'. For example, someone coming from a C++ background might not have as many issues with Java as someone coming from a strictly Javascript background.

But as programmers, it's always good to explore other languages than the ones we are comfortable with, it helps us see things in different ways.
