Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Java SE

My organization mainly uses Microsoft technologies, but when we need to innovate for bleeding edge data analytics, we always lean on Java to provide the fastest data-based software builds.
  • Java Handles its own memory well!
  • Is a typed language, so has great standards.
  • I am unsure if the new speed of releases is realistic for the wider talent world to keep up.
  • Official training and support from Oracle to develop the community feels like it prices out new devs.
  • Fantastic for low-cost innovation PoCs.
  • .NET
Java out of the box is lower cost traditionally. As time has evolved, c# is catching up.
Most of the best support comes from the community. As such, I don't know that I feel Oracle provides the right kind of balance outside the pay wall.

Would you buy Oracle Java SE again?


Java (and Spring) is great for large scale applications or large volumes of microservices. However, it is limited in usability for small quick applications. The boilerplate can be daunting.
