Final Results from our Java EE 8 Community Survey

In the final phase of our Java EE 8 Community Survey, we asked community members to tell us how they would prioritize among the most frequently requested features from parts 1 and 2 of the survey.
The areas that we selected for this prioritization exercise correspond to those features that received at least 60% “Yes” votes in parts 1 and 2. (For a summary of the results from part 1 and 2, see here.)
Survey participants were given 100 “points” to allocate among these features, as shown below.

1) Coding, Coding and Coding
Why I have coding at top of this list? because it's difficult and same time it's central piece of programming. By doing coding, you also realize your mistakes in designing, error handling, threading and then go back to those respective skill to improve. You just can not work in designing only, coding produce output, which is important to learn and act as success. By the way, do not stop just after solving the problem, it's always better to throw away your first solution, that is just a prototype, your next solution should address issues, missing requirements which you have found building prototype.



It is now a bit more than a year from our 2013 insight into application server market share. To verify whether the landscape has changed during the 14 months we went through the 783 different configurations launching On Demand Plumbr between February and May 2014.
The data was gathered from the bootstrap classpath – so the following statistics is based upon the outcome of queries similar to “grep -i tomcat classpath.log”.
What we discovered is not too different from last year. Out of the 783 environments, we managed to link 623 back to a specific application server.  Those 623 revealed themselves to launch the following containers:
