Java is far from being dead. If you do a "Wayback Machine" search you will find this recent snapshot: http://web.archive.org/web/20110722174236/http://www.javajunkies.org/
"I think the only visitors to this site have been search bots for the last 6 months, so it is time to shutter up the web site.
I will be holding on to the code used to run JavaJunkies for a time so if you were one of the administrators of the site and would like to set JJ up again somewhere else, contact me.
I met some interesting people through JJ and I hope you did too.
