Hi folks,
I need some comparison here,I came across internal position at my company in C/C++ Dev. group. I am intrested in it. I am only SCJP and no "Hands on experience" in C++ or Java.
Can you guys tell me How I pursue the hiring manger that knowing java will cover C++ ( I have no clue about C++ but I have 6 yrs programming exp in mainframe)?

You can try something like:
Java and C++ are a lot alike.
I understand how to use pointers.
I understand OO programming concepts.
I am eager to learn and my SCJP shows that I can quickly learn a new language.

If these positions come up from time to time and you want to be better prepared to take a C/C++ position, it may be worth your while to get a C++ compiler and book and dig in. A hiring manager might like that you have done this.
