Well, my first post of the thread was pretty dead on "nobody" vs
"somebody". Yes, it's about semantics.
I'm interested in other uses of Java too, of course. You don't have to
convince me that there are, and I think that the assertion is easy to
demonstrate. Ricky added more examples, and I'm working with desktop
industrial applications for years with big corporates. It's the end-user
segment that, I think, need to be clarified.
So, I figure that the US judiciary system has some requirements similar to
the one of auto-dealers you mentioned, or perhaps there's a technical
problem with HTML and signed uploads (it looks as it's the same strict
requirement for italian business consultants). Architecturally speaking,
and considering that upgrade problems aren't rare circumstances, I'd
probably prefer to see a webapp for that kind of software if I was in
charge of it. So, it might even be *bad* to have Java there, but it's
there. The presence of Java on the desktop is mostly underestimated, this
is my point.
