25 greatest java apps reaction
Your reactions to the 25 greatest Java apps ever

September 2020
It was with a smidge of trepidation that, for the language’s 25th anniversary, I offered my list of the 25 greatest Java applications, frameworks, platforms, and libraries ever written. After all, developers are a demanding audience. But the article received hundreds of comments on Reddit, Slashdot, Hacker News, and Twitter, and it inspired many letters to the editor. In my follow-up article, I share your nominations of even more great apps from around the world!

Also, tune in for more goodies this month when we unveil Java 15 and related technologies (hint: see the “Latest releases” section, below). As always, let me know what you’re building.
