InfoQ: Typesafe survey: Java 8 Adoption Strong, Users Anxious for Java 9
December 08, 2014
"Typesafe recently released a report based on their survey findings of over 3000 Java developers, focusing on the adoption of Java 8 as well as upcoming developer technology trends. From the survey results, the Java 8 adoption rate overall looks strong, particularly since version 8 had been available for only six months when the survey was taken back in September 2014. This is significant as Oracle’s Java 7 support will potentially end as early as April 2015."
