The Rise of Open Source Java
June 20, 2005 Leave a comment
Tim has found something interesting. Even though Java isn't Open Source, books on Open Source Java Projects such as Spring, Struts, Lucene, and AspectJ have caused a reversal in the downward trend of Java book sales. Once again Open Source is causing a market to shift. I also think the consistent dive that VB books have taken over the last year when mentioned with the fact that there is not a corollary increase in the .NET books, is significant. I look forward to seeing Tim present his full report at OSCon.
