Hi

According to the current ranking Java is on top of the list in all programming languages. Especially the J2EE, J2SP, JSP, Servlets, Beans etc are very famous.

I started working with Java and found for the first time, to my amazement, that we do not have any discussion forum for Java here...

I wanted to drive the attention of Mods here towards the need of a Java forum on WebmasterWorld.

thank you

On second thought, I don't think that's what you are looking for.

Java subjects are covered currently in the Website technology Issues [webmasterworld.com] forum, as are ColdFusion and other less common server-side languages which don't (yet) have a specific forum.

Why no dedicated Java forum? Because currently the volume of posts on the subject is probably too low to justify one. :)

Java is on top for the current rating of programming languages and Servlets, Beans and J2EE for SAP are hot as any other web subject nowadays. Do you still think it is not popular enough to get a dedicated forum?

Secondly, how did you determine the volume of posts related to Java/J2EE/Servlets etc etc? Please dont tell me from the JavaScript forum :) bcz java and javascript are two very different worlds....

I still feel that if we have full group of forums for Google, Yahoo and Microsoft then we should have one for Sun :) especially after Sun's step to make most important products open source they really deserve the place.

I do not want to take the name of another forum where I am contributing to the java forum but to tell you we get hundreds of active users in that on daily basis.

But still, you are the more wise people than me so you know better than me if we need a dedicated Java forum here. I just wanted to share my thoughts.

we don't start new forums unless there are a large number of posts here in another forum. If website technology becomes overrun with java topics then we would address giving it it's own home.
