Predictions for Java (18 - November - 97)
Java is a easy to use cross platform technology. Though it is technically sound, the future depends on how much developers work together to bring great applications. Being used mostly for web applications, lots of developers and companies should come forward to use java. if it happens java will be another C++ in backend and another VB in front end. Otherwise... will become another Fortran or Pascal like language which soon will become rarely used one.
