Interview with Typesafe: 4 answers about the past, present and future of Scala development

10 kickass tools developers love next jvm language

In our recent publication 10 Kick-Ass Technologies Modern Developers Love, we selected a group of tools that developers have proven to really enjoy (based on a heady mix of market data, community activity, anecdotal evidence, our own experiences and a general gut feeling). With Scala as the 1st choice of alternative JVM language to learn, we wanted to get a few more details from the coder perspective about Scala.

Top 4 Java Web Frameworks Revealed: Real Life Usage Data of Spring MVC, Vaadin, GWT and JSF

Report page, brought for comparison

Back in May 2014, we launched what proved to be our most popular investigation into Java developers tools and technologies–The Java Tools and Technologies Landscape for 2014. Propelled by a rush of charitable feelings, precisely 2164 JVM developers responded to the survey–each response donated 0.50 USD to Child’s Play, a charity that gives sick children Playstations for passing their time in a hospital.

One of the most popular subjects that we regularly cover has to do with Java Web Frameworks–after all, it’s one of the most active and fragmented technology segments out there. One in 10 devs we talked to doesn’t use any frameworks at all, and one in five developers uses 40 or so frameworks that aren’t even in the top 8 most used out there. What the heck is going on here!

Here is what look at today:

* How many developers use multiple frameworks?
* Breakdowns for the top 4 frameworks compared to the average results (e.g. what % of Spring MVC users also use Vaadin?)

Did you know that in 1981, Estonians decided that their daily lives were a bit too bereft of humor and thus decreed that the 1st day of all months in the year was to be a day of jokes, sarcasm and fun. This is a total fabrication brought on by too many coffees this morning, but if it was true then I’d be wishing you an August Fool’s Day right now!
