Is java a redundant technology if yes what makes a technology redundant. Also python is considered as a prospective language better than java. please give your thoughts.

I know of an effort at a company where they were developing
a product in both Python and Java. Things got tight and only
the Java version survived. This could be just for popularity
reasons, but there were complaints about some of the Python
syntax. As far as redundant, I'm not sure what you mean, they
all have to be Turing machines. Most features of Java were
already in some language or another if that's what you are
asking.

Jim,
What exactly do you mean by saying 'they would have to be Turing machines'?

Marius,
Here's a short page describing what a Turing Machine is http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/turing-machine/
Basically, a Turing Machine is an abstract theoretical representation of an "information processing" device... which can be hardware or software of any kind... so by this definition any sort of software... compiler, editor, game, etc... is a "Turing Machine"...
