Default Java won't curl up and die like Cobol, insists Oracle

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/03..._9_10_roadmap/

Quote:
QCon 2012 With Java 8 still on its way in mid-2013, Oracle is already prepping for Java 9 and 10, and protesting that reports of a Cobolesque slide into irrelevance are much exaggerated.

I always think of my friend who told me of his studies in COBOL back in the early '80s. I used to laugh at him when he told me how much he loved it but, just a couple of weeks ago, I saw his name on LinkedIn where it said he was still doing COBOL at his job. At a financial institution of course.
