5 Trends to Watch in the Java Ecosystem

Over the last couple of months a number of announcements have been made that change the the Java ecosystem. These changes could have a long-term impact on Java developers and the Eclipse community. This week at JavaOne I expect we will hear about a lot of these changes. For the most part I think there are 5 key trends that all Java developers will need to watch.  If you can’t make it to JavaOne, many of these trends will also be highlighted at EclipseCon Europe.
