They're talking about the concept of Java end of life, not the java platform, just the language and the rise of other languages like Clojure and Scala that run on the JVM.  

Clojure and Scala are much better languages than Java. But everyone I know professionally uses Java. Java is "good enough" and there is already a huge market of talent around it.
