- Linux usage among developers is on the rise, at the expense of Windows
- MySQL has pulled ahead of Oracle, by a factor of 3-to-2, as the database of choice among Eclipse developers.
- Enterprise JavaBeans and Spring usage are in a dead heat
MySQL database usage has grown 27.7 percent in 2009 to 31.8 percent in 2010. At the same time, usage of Oracle's database fell from 27.3 percent in 2009 to 21.8 percent in 2010.
'The data demonstrate that fears surrounding Oracle's control over MySQL have not resulted in lower use of MySQL in favor of an alternative open source database,' Rodrigues writes.
Usage of Windows by developers declined from 64.3 percent in 2009 to 58.3 percent in 2010. The decline of Windows is mirrored by a nearly equivalent growth in Linux usage on developer desktops.
