#Java's death will be due to SEO mess, lack of centralized docs, outdated tutorials & no one-stop-shop place to find it all

- go.java
- openjdk.java.net
- oracle.com/java
- java.oracle.com
- java.com
- docs.oracle.com/javase/
- go.java

This site was supposed to be the answer, but it only raises even more questions. The information here is mostly marketing-related, and has pointers to other online locations, outside go.java.

Potential: very high.
Reality: waste of TLD.
- openjdk.java.net

The Java source, no doubt. Yet, devs who want to just learn/code Java apps will only find binaries downloads. Nothing else serves the average Java software developer. "Developer's Guide" is for contributors.

Potential: high.
Reality: confusion.
- oracle.com/java

Good starting point for enterprises interested in commercial support. Yet it quickly loses the focus, and confuses the user with links to other oracle.com properties unrelated to commercial support.

Potential: medium.
Reality: sales.
- java.oracle.com

Just a front-door with lots of links to other online properties. Ironically, perhaps the most useful aggregation of Java-related web sites from Oracle.

Potential: low.
Reality: aggregator.
- java.com

Used to be *the* go-to for JRE download. Since Sun Microsystems, focused on end-user (consumer) of Java-powered applications, where non-developers would download Java for day-to-day use (e.g. banking, games).

Potential: very high.
Reality: legacy.
- docs.oracle.com/javase/

What could've been the #1 place to learn Java, sadly is not linked from any of the previous locations. Documentation is deep, though inconsistent and with many outdated tutorials. Poor awareness.

Potential: very high.
Reality: inconsistent.
Compare with other langs: #Golang #Kotlin #Python #TypeScript #Scala #Groovy sites are great on "get started > learn more".

- python.org
- golang.org
- kotlinlang.org
- typescriptlang.org
- scala-lang.org
- groovy-lang.org
