  • JDK

    JDK main-line development https://openjdk.org/projects/jdk

  • Contrary to what vocal Kotlin advocates might believe, Kotlin only matters on Android, and that is thanks to Google pushing it no matter what.

    And even so, they had to conceed Android and Kotlin on their own, without the Java ecosystem aren't really much useful, thus ART is now updatable via Play Store, and currently supports OpenJDK 17 LTS on Android 12 and later devices.

    As for your question regarding numbers, mostly Java 74.6%, C++ 13.7%, on the OpenJDK, other JVM implementations differ, e.g. GraalVM is mostly Java 91.8%, C 3.6%.

  • .NET Runtime

    .NET is a cross-platform runtime for cloud, mobile, desktop, and IoT apps.

  • If you care about portable SIMD and performance, you may want to save yourself trouble and skip to C# instead, it also has an extensive guide to using it: https://github.com/dotnet/runtime/blob/69110bfdcf5590db1d32c...

    CoreLib and many new libraries are using it heavily to match performance of manually intensified C++ code.

  • Apple use Scala, not Java, for that sort of thing. At least that was the case last time I interacted with them.

    Here are some of the suggested starting points for Scala: https://docs.scala-lang.org/

    Here are the Scala books I've written: https://noelwelsh.com/landing/books/

    Here's the coding group I run: https://www.scalabridgelondon.org/

    ScalaBridge's online events have attendees from across Europe.
