Where Should Java Platform Attention Be Focused In 2011? Cast Your Vote!

Posted by editor on January 27, 2011 at 7:24 PM PST

Have you voted in the current java.net poll yet? The poll asks Which area of Java/JVM technology most desperately needs serious attention in 2011?

There has been plenty of recent discussion about new directions and areas of focus for Java platform development for the coming year and beyond. But, are the areas that are being discussed the areas that developers consider to need the most attention? Or are some very important aspects of the Java platform being neglected, or even left behind?

Share your view by voting, if you haven't done so already. Or even if you've already voted, consider posting a comment that reflects your view.

The poll will close on Monday.
