How to Build Java Applications Today?

Confused smiley

I Help You Answer This Question!

In my monthly “Java Full-Stack Report”, I recommend IDEs, build tools, JVM languages, databases, back-end frameworks, web frameworks, and mobile app frameworks. I also cover essential releases and news.


THIS MONTH: Java had patch releases, we can now write command-line interfaces with Java, and this book will save IntelliJ users tons of time.


This report is different because it measures popularity by observing what all Java developers do: job ads from 59 countries, online training students, Stack Overflow questions, and Google searches. My recommendations are based on that popularity, industry analysis, and my 24 years of Java experience.

Why popularity? Because picking a popular technology makes our developer life easier: easier to learn, easier to build, debug & deploy, easier to find jobs/hire, and easier to convince teammates & bosses. Now popularity can make a difference in two situations: When multiple technologies score similarly, we could go for the most popular one. And when a technology is very unpopular, we may not use it.


I also help you get started with technologies that are important for us Java developers.


I share slides, videos, additional information, and links to get started for my conference and JUG talks.
