On java survey


Results from the 2004 ONJava Reader Survey

http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2004/05/19/2004-survey.html


IDE usage:

62%: The Eclipse globbing monster as usual :)

20%: Idea

No mention at all about JBuilder - is it shrinking so fast in the
marketplace?



"Eclipse was the clear winner among IDEs, with 62 percent of readers
saying that they used it. Next, at 29 percent, was the "none" option
preferred by those who use emacs, vi, or another text editor along with
a command line. IntelliJ was next at 20 percent, followed by Netbeans
at 16 percent. The "Other" option, 16 percent of the responses,
included Visual SlickEdit, vim, Visual Studio, Gel, and XCode."

Lame surveys and incredibly inaccurate I think. They depend on people who
go visit the site, and until you just mentioned it, I never looked at it.

Agreed, I think the survey was of OnJava readers, which I would guess is
heavily slanted towards Open Source developers.
Remember with statistics, you are only make an inference based upon the
population sampled.

Yup and if you read the whole thing, they too find some of the results odd.
So...
