No mention of Distributed Version Control Systems (Git, Mercurial, Bazaar, etc.)? They seem (to) mighty important in the grand scheme of things. Ah -- maybe that falls under development practices....

I noticed there were no view type technologies. No AJAX, no Flex, no Mobile Apps. Is this intentional?

I'd say ORM, with Hibernate as the lead. For a large number of coders, writing software meant debugging SQL statements.

@Drew: In the view tech arena, I'd say that last decade disruptive technology was "usability". In those pre-Web 2.0 days, making a site easy to use for "commom" people was an afterthought.

I guess you could thank script libraries like prototype.js, jQuery and Scriptaculous for making it easy.
