Here is a very easy riddle for you:

I am a piece of land but I am also technology.
I am drowning and many people think that my time is over.
But still, many people build on me.
Some people want to relocate a part of me to somewhere else.

Who am I?

Hint 1

Anything in this riddle relates to both sides of me.

Hint 2

If you really have no idea of who I am, you may look a little bit closer at this Stack Exchange Account.

The answer is

Java


I am a piece of land but I am also technology.

The island and the programming language

I am drowning and many people think that my time is over.

The sea level is rising slowly over the island (25cm a year in Jakarta), and java can be considered an older coding language as it was released in 1995, and there's lots of new languages out there now

But still, many people build on me.

Build on the island and build with the code

Some people want to relocate a part of me to somewhere else.

Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, is quickly sinking and there are plans of moving it to Borneo, and programmers can move language, for instance from java to C#

Also, a line from the OP's bio:

"Programming languages that I like: java, java and (most importantly) JAVA"

  • $\begingroup$ About the part of the relocation of the technology: There are even 2 possibilities (I can think of) but both possibilities require a bit of knowledge. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @dan1st I've come up with moving sprites and moving files, either of those? $\endgroup$ Mar 26 '20 at 21:51
  • $\begingroup$ No, it's something of the language...or maybe the community, you may find one thing if you really look at the hints...but this is clearly the most difficult part :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @dan1st perhaps this? I'll be honest I've looked loads and can't find anything that fits perfectly $\endgroup$ Mar 26 '20 at 22:01
  • $\begingroup$ Actually, I have not thought about that but it is kind of close. $\endgroup$
