re: The Death Of Java In The Enterprise?
Quite true.-Java is-mostly for sites that want to run applets in your browser. There are not many of those.

re: The Death Of Java In The Enterprise?
getting hacked can be rather costly . consequently it behoves us to evaluate the software we have in service with respect to security problems .

there are no big secrets : the usual suspects are responsible over and over and over again . some of these products are probably beyond repair as they were not designed with security in mind at the start .

which makes it evident we need to switch to software products that take security seriously .

re: The Death Of Java In The Enterprise?
The web-based Java apps are not the problem. They're just hosted on Java servers, but tend not to be Java applets that run in the browser. It's only a Java applet that runs in the browser that's a problem. That's the only way currently to get the malicious payload.

-Most browsers are running javascript not java.- I very rarely find anything that requires java in the browser.- Java as an application tools is great as a browser plugin is unnecessary in 99% of the cases

Wow, that's a really great idea. Industries that have poured millions into web-based Java apps should just stop using them. Why didn't anybody else think of that?

re: The Death Of Java In The Enterprise?
Easy:- don't use java in a browser.- All the vulnerabilities I've seen so far have been when from that use case (unless I missed some).- Using java for desktop apps and server-side still has its place, and will for a long time.
