In more detail - IT Managers like to think they going to be using
whatever is fashionable, although they call it 'following industry
trends', i.e. if it's got big full page ads and acompanying articles
they are of course looking to deploy it, and no dynamic language has
or needs those ads so they aren't thinking about them.
Of course while a lot of these directors are saying 'we need to move
to Java', the people actually building and developing a solution are
continuing to use perl, python, etc.
In fact I can name off the top of my head at least 3 companies that
have been saying they will move to Java from perl and have been
recruiting 'perl developers to help move to java' for years,
I imagine many of those surveyed are in a similar situation - moving
to Java would be a pointless waste of time and money.
