The awards recognize the best products and tools for Java technologies in 29 categories. Winners were selected through reader-submitted nominations, followed by online voting at SYS-CON Media’s world-leading Java online magazine site (http://jdj.sys-con.com/).

“This year’s Readers’ Choice Awards results are strong evidence of how the resurgence of enterprise software and tools spawned by the advent of new approaches such as AJAX and Web 2.0 has in turn rejuvenated Java,” said Jeremy Geelan, SYS-CON’s senior vice president, editorial & events. “SYS-CON Media and Java Developer’s Journal together salute the 29 winners as well as the finalists and congratulate them for so clearly helping lead that surge.”
