Discussion on: Java is Dead - Long Live Java

Bad programs can be written in any language. And Java is not an exception. But it's also possible to write fast and efficient apps in Java.
So if your saw slow and bloated apps, it's not Java to blame. Usually behind such apps one can find two things:

  • slow, bloated, but very popular and widely used "safe choice" frameworks.
  • young programmers, who learned only couple popular frameworks to be "in trend" and get first job quickly.

Such combination can produce artefacts of unlimited size with infinite resource consumption.
But, again, Java has nothing to do with that. Same issue can be found in projects written in other languages.
