The Java bandwaggon is not producing the profits to match its PR so far, according to an IDC survey of the software market. Java revenue was worth less than $100 million of the total $27.7 billion development tools market in 1996. Among packaged software suppliers, Microsoft, IBM and SAP all rake in revenues in excess of $1 billion, while IBM is still beating Microsoft in the systems software market - although its share is falling while Microsoft's is growing. A final version of the preliminary report will be issued next year.
