Short: IS managers don't know about Java

Senior IS managers don't yet know much about or care much for Java, according to a survey conducted by consulting company Alexander & Associates and underwritten by Ignite Technologies, a Java tool maker. The survey polled the opinions of 100 chief information or technology officers at companies with more than 5,000 employees. The results say that Java faces two major hurdles: that senior managers perceive Java as an immature language, and that they are not familiar with the benefits of Java for cross-platform development and real-time capabilities. More than half the companies surveyed had no Java programmers on staff.
