hmmmm... somebody posted this message in a yahoo group, which I’m a member of. Can anyone give a satisfactory answer? haven't been much into C++ lately so I'm not sure about the 3rd claim....
-----------------------------------------------
could somebody plz verify the following claim? i was always under the
impression that java was better in all respects.
People recommend C++ for the reasons that:
1. Its fast.
2. Every application in the world is designed in C++.
3. Its Libraries and other resources are more vast than any other
language.
People recommend J A VA for the reasons that:
1. Its hell lot easier and at several unies they expend only 1 semester
in teching J A V A.

1. It's faster for some things. Java has caught up in some areas and is catching up in more areas.

Java is safer (not as many gotchas)

2. Obviously not true.
3. Java's librarys are smaller because it hasn't been around as long as C++.

4. I think one semester is not enough to learn Java properly, although you could get an introduction in that length of time.

I think that it is, however, easier to get started in Java than it is in C++.

1)It doesn�t matter if it is fast. What matter is that it is not slow.
2)Obviously not true
3)It doesn�t matter if it has vast libraries. What matters is that it has libraries you need.
What language needs more then one semester at university?
