Migrating to .NET?

I have observed that enterprises are moving to .NET from Java / legacy systems, and main reasons for migrations being

  • Less development/integration cost
  • Greater productivity in development; thanks to the Visual Studio, the best IDE
  • Easier maintenance; thanks to XCopy, ClickOnce features in .NET

The only drawback is; lack of free/open source frameworks and libraries; but this is not that big hurdle; as overheads incurred due to purchasing third party tools get justified in less development / integration cost.

Is your enterprise moving to .NET; or have plans to move to in near future?

What's your observation based on?
Because you happened to develop 1 or 2 small scale application in .NET.
Have you ever developed in Java?
Don't give you short sighted observation from your tiny world unless you can back it up.
And don't try to back it up by giving stupid examples (like I have read on the web).
Small cubes can only lead to small mentalities.

My observation is based on few of our clients to whom we give consultancy. Mostly, the clients are from academia, logistics, textiles and import/export markets.

I had been biggest advocate of Java back in 90s in my university; though I couldnt used it in my professional career. I had been writing Perl / C code in Unix and later Visual C on NT. Thanks to .NET I can see "its all happening" what Sun/Java guys dreamed of; a pure object oriented platform; as performant as their counter parts...

Anyways I respect all programmers; regardless what they are using. I understand the "Java religion" and know that I can never motivate guys like you; but whenever you get some time; do try it...

I agree the .NET is dominating, not for small apps but for the enterprize apps too. I wont give you links beacuse you can find it all over the net. Right now .NET shares 55 to 60% of worlds' enterprize market. I'm sure whatever you show to  "Java Religion" they simply dont accept the reality. I started my career as a JAVA lover but after less than an year I came to know this is not something ACCEPTABLE. Java is good for hobbiest as I'm still engaged in JSP, JSF, Struts but I for professional projects its a nightmere. Thanks to .NET, its a TRUE development platform.

Java is dying king. Embrace .NET.
