When it comes to building enterprise Web services, the entrenched Java language is maintaining a healthy lead over top contender C#, Microsoft's best-suited language for the job from its .Net toolbox, according to a new survey.   The Evans Data survey of 398 programmers shows Java winning handily in five out of six categories important to Web-services developers. For example, when developers were asked what they preferred for syntax, 36% said Java and 23% said C#; 40% preferred Java for memory management while 30% preferred C#.
The story also includes a graphic of a META Group survey, which shows that 61% of respondents have deployed or are in development with J2EE applications, vs. 42% for .NET.
