January 6th, 2009 | by Tonny Kohar |

This Java statistics is based on (not this blog, this blog is tracked separately). Basically, it is a B2C sites which specialize in Java Desktop Application.

If you are wondering how do we track Java version, please visit this step by step guide on how to track java version using google analytics at

Here is our Java visitor stats, it is fresh from Google Analytics data 05 December 2008 – 05 January 2009

Java Visitors

and the corresponding Operating System (OS) stats

OS Visitors

Based on the above, Java 1.6_xx seems to have very nice grounds, and the Java 1.5 (9.36%) seems come from Mac OSX (12.90%), not set is probably from visitor who disable javascript (noscript).

The only things that puzzle me is the Java 1.8.0 (6.59%). Where does it come from or is there really a Java 1.8.0 ? If you know where this 1.8.0 come from, please do not hesitate to drop me a note.

    Java 1.8.0 represents Java6 under MacOSX. I is a bug in deployJava.js which Sun plans to fix.

    I suggest you regenerate your statistics using the newer script I posted at and exclude “(not set)” from your result-set by limited the dates making up your report.

    I can see that Java is very widely used. Do you have explanations on the methodologies used in the surveys?
