Replay Solutions' Annual Java Technology Survey Shows Enterprise Java Teams Actively Evaluating, Testing and Deploying Cloud Applications

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) -  Replay Solutions (, a pioneer in application logging, software debugging and problem resolution technology, today announced the results of its first Annual Java Technology Survey. This year's survey was conducted with more than 1,000 enterprise Java architects, developers and project leaders. The results of the survey highlight technology trends, as well as which Java platforms are hot in 2010.

A strong theme emerged from the study showing significant trending towards the evaluation, testing and deployment of cloud applications built on Java. In 2010, over one third of Java application teams will either deploy or test applications in the cloud.

The survey was conducted in March, 2010 with 1,101 enterprise architects, developers and project leaders who are using, deploying or supporting Java EE applications in 2010.

The full results of the survey are available to the public at

Select highlights from the survey:

- Java Cloud Computing: 36% of respondents said they would either test or deploy parts of their infrastructure to the cloud in 2010. Similarly, 35% of respondents expect to more than double virtual machine deployments in 2010.

- Java EE App Servers: 57% of respondents chose Apache Tomcat, 37% chose WebSphere, 22% chose WebLogic and 26% chose JBoss. (More than one could be selected.)

- Java Platforms: 57% of respondents said they expect to run Java applications on Windows, while 35% chose Red Hat or CentOS, and 18% on Solaris.

- Java EE IDEs: 66% of respondents said the Eclipse IDE was still the most important Java EE IDE. 17% chose NetBeans and 12% chose JDeveloper.

"Due to our focus and commitment to the Java community, we conducted this survey to learn more about Java technology trends, and to share the results with the Java community," said Jonathan Lindo, CEO of Replay Solutions. "While the survey confirmed our focus on JBoss, Tomcat, WebLogic and WebSphere application teams, we were surprised by the high percentage of enterprise Java teams actively testing or deploying cloud infrastructure this year. We're encouraged to expand our own cloud-based solution which we recently made available with ReplayDIRECTOR 3.0 in order to better support our community of users."
