Java is dead

I just came back from the 30st Athens OpenCoffee event. One more interesting event but the best part for me was when Brian Teeman of Joomla was asked by one of the attendants if Joomla was going to support other databases or other languages like e.g. Java. His answer was immediate: "Java, NO. Java is dead. And if it isn't dead, then it should be".

He must know something that we don't know.

Thanks Brian. I would gladly come but unfortunately I can't. Is any other java guy available ?

I think people are judging the comment out of context. I was not there, but I can understand that Java is dead in the same sense that Unix is dead when Rob Pike said it.
