Is Java still a good option for enterprise?

The JVM ecosystem has been incredible for many years. Pretty amazing languages such as Scala, Kotlin, and Clojure, libraries, IDEs, and excellent books. Java 19 with the Loom Project supports a high-throughput, lightweight concurrency model. 

I believe Java is in the right direction to become a better language. Today I used some of the new features, although it is not as expressive as the other JVM languages. I enjoyed working with this version.

Records, Pattern Matching, Sealed classes, switch as expressions, type inference, and many more. I hope shortly the companies start looking at Java as a good option for startups.
