On Friday morning, somewhat reluctantly, I decided to fill in Sun's JCP survey with the faint hope that it might somehow make the process better. The survey didn't seem to be that well thought out, failing to provide "not applicable" opt-out choices for questions that users may know nothing about.

But as a Swing developer I do wonder what I was meant to do when faced with the page below. I thought Java on the desktop was a new priority? Perhaps "Enterprise Application" is meant to cover it?
