team,

Today i had a discussion(argument) with my manager, he strongly saying .NET is faster than java?
As per my knowledge both are implemented using C and C++ then how come .NET is faster than JAVA?

is .NET is really faster? As a big fan of java i can't digest this.


thanks, regards
Vasu M

I think the differences in speed tests are not comparable to the differences in coding. That is, you can write slow programs in either language. I think they both execute the code at about the same speed.

Unless you have some documented reason why such almost insignificant performance improvements would make a difference, I would say there are plenty of other reasons to choose one over another.

Seriously...saving a few milliseconds here and there usually don't ever add up to anything noticeable - especially when there will most likely be plenty of other things having a much larger impact. File or disk IO, or user input, or network communication...etc.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
