The Rise of Open Source Java

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.
