When Java fans refer to the language as being 'strongly typed', they actually mean the immense number of key presses needed to actually code anything of use up. There's been a working group meeting for some years to agree what changes to the language are needed to compress the canonical 'hello world' program into under a day's typing by an average-speed typist, but after 7 years of intense discussion, the group is yet to agree on whether the text 'world' should be followed by a newline or not.
You can tell a long-time Java developer by their over-sized hands and severe callouses on their finger tips, along with the inability to remember where, when and why they started their latest piece of Java development, and how many more factories, proxies, mementos, listeners, actors and shims the code will need before it does anything useful at all. The really old ones (in their 40s and above) will wistfully mention how good the original IBM PC keyboard was, because, under the incessant pounding and beating from Java developers, modern keyboards tend to melt, fall to pieces or explode before the first Bean has limped its way into its application server, only to fail to deploy with a 750 line stack trace, of which but a single line will refer to any code the developer has written.
The most hardened and ancient Java developers (say aged 45 and older) will have forgotten their names, all their personal history and relationships, and very often how to even leave their offices, as the sheer number and volume of specifications needed to realise the most simple of concepts will have removed capacity for any other knowledge in the single-minded developer's brain. James Gosling, when he isn't apologising profusely for what he's done, tends to answer every question with the cryptic utterance, 'ask Maven why and then I'll cry'. And he's one of the lucky ones: to this day, no-one will officially speak of what actually happened between Marc Fleury and Cameron Purdy when they accidentally met in a hotel in Chicago, except that they allegedly broke each other's encapsulation so badly that parts of the hotel are still off limits to anyone but NASA specialists.
So best of luck to Oracle, and I'll look forward to their latest Java goodness some time before the universe cools.
