Poll Results - Thank you for voting!
On 21 December, ZDNet posted a story reporting the preliminary results of
this poll, which showed a large majority of respondents who said they
planned to deliver applications via Web services by the end of 2002 favoured
Java for the job. At the time, Java outranked .Net by a factor of three in
this poll. By early January, the position had reversed; the results are
shown here. An investigation indicated that Microsoft employees used
vote-rigging to distort the results. The full story can be found here.
Do you plan to have Web services running by the end of 2002? If so, which?
