Java is Dead! Once More

Programming languages are ranked based on different criteria. For example, Stack Overflow lists programming languages based on the number of questions and answers; while it is a clear indication of the recent popularity of a language, already matured languages not necessarily require the developers to search for "how to write a loop". Similarly, the famous index Tiobe lists Java as the second most popular language next to C at the time of writing this article. Tiboe ranks programming languages based on the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses, and third-party vendors. Popular search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube, and Baidu are used to calculate the ratings. It is important to note that the TIOBE index is not about the best programming language or the language in which most lines of code have been written.

Coming to the point, recently I saw an index claiming Python took the first place pushing Java to the second place. Nothing to worry; good for Python! The programming language war is never-ending like the Linux distribution war. Fanboys always claim that their language is superior to any other language. This article analyzes if Java is dying and is Python replacing Java so that you can learn and live with Python only. I am comparing Python against Java because of the most recent claims I've seen over the internet but the core idea remains the same for any language out there.
