I'm thinking about Java and how much I like the idea of Java but I'm also wondering if it really is a dead thing -- except legacy work.


Versus what exactly?

TIOBE Index | TIOBE - The Software Quality Company[^]

Notice where C is in that list? (To answer question about something being too old.)

Is Java a valid choice for cross-platform development (windows to linux to macOS)?


I have been developing for six years in windows, only windows, and delivering solutions that run in linux, only linux. So certainly seems to work for me.

I used Eclipse in the earlier days of Android Development and thought


I didn't care for eclipse when I used it long ago. I liked the VS IDE when I was doing C#, but even with that I still used my own editor and only used the IDE for building and running. I have heard good things about Intellij.

And for 4 years I didn't use an IDE at all.

I examined a JavaFX sample project and noticed the entire UI was built in code


Not sure what any of that means. But not really a UI person. However at least recently those that I know that do UIs use javascript and html. Those however would both still be 'code'.
