Annual Java Report Reveals 42% of Companies are Dedicating Resources to Developer Productivity

MINNEAPOLIS, MARCH 5, 2024 — Perforce Software, a provider of solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle, today announced the results of their annual survey of the Java community, the JRebel 2024 Java Developer Productivity Report.

The report presents industry data and analysis on the key factors shaping Java development trends. Key findings centered on methods to encourage Java productivity—with 42% of those surveyed creating dedicated productivity teams or work groups. This year’s report also found shifting Java IDE preferences, increasing numbers of microservices, and lengthy remote deployment times. 

“Developer productivity teams are paving the path forward,” said Perforce CTO Rod Cope. “These teams investigate solutions and test workflows so developers can concentrate on writing code—and pay dividends as development environments become increasingly more complex. This is the first year we’ve tracked the incidence of dedicated productivity teams, and at 42% we only expect that number to skyrocket.”

Additionally, the 2024 Java Developer Productivity Report found that 8% of respondents are using AI tools like ChatGPT and GitHub CoPilot to write Java code.
