    Java or .NET ???


    Hi,
    with the release of VisualStudio .NET , will Java survive???
    As I read, .NET contains all Java features, plus having a good developing
    environment, plus being from MS which will make it gain big popularity &
    support..

    I have a good knowledge in C++, but starting to get deeper regarding software
    & internet developing & confused which to choose:
    Java or .NET ???

    Java will survive (according to my crystal ball). It continues to improve,
    runs on almost all platforms, and is supported by all major vendors except
    MS. Java will not go away. There is a major push to Linux on the server.
    .Net currently doesn't got there and viably won't for a long time. And
    since most 'internet' processing occurs server-side ... .

    Yes, .Net has a good IDE but the only good one is from MS. Yes, you can
    code in different languages in .Net, but they have to conform to the same
    rules for this to be usefully and most(if not all) of the languages available
    for .Net were created by MS or paid to be created by MS. .Net doesn't contain
    all of Java's features and .Net has some things Java doesn't.

    You can't go 'wrong' (employment wise) with either one. Find out what kind
    of work you can get. Most big cities have Java development going on. There
    is some .Net work going on and it is growing. For the most part, I would
    venture a guess it is mostly to replace current Windows development(i.e.
    "were going to use VB, now VB.Net") and not displacing Java. In London,
    they are desparately looking for J2EE programmers.

    I think .Net is really cool but most of what is being said for it and against
    Java is FUD and smoke and mirrors. For distributed computing I would choose
    Java over .Net.

    Java will survive and still improve
    Visual Studio .NET is really cool. But It cannot beat Java when comes for
    OS Independence and Security. Java is very flexible and robust for developing
    especially Network based applications.

    I used to be a big MS supporter -- not any more. When I see the top MS execs
    saying that Java is "just for downloading little programs" over the net,
    it yanks my chain. They invented C# because they were aware of the limitations
    of VB and C++. C# looks almost exactly like Java. Coincidence???? Hardly!!!!


    I have been developing in Visual Studio for years, and consider myself fairly
    expert in it. Now, however, if I never write another line of Microsoft Code
    it will be fine with me. Other factors (eg employment) being the same, you
    might want to consider the ethics of the company to which you are linking
    yourself. Microsoft is a bunch of elitist bastards who need to some lessons
    on personal conduct (probably personal grooming, too, but I've never met
    them in person). I'm not saying that SUN is anyone's best friend, either,
    but there are alot of really excellent programmers doing lots of open source
    programming, which you can get for free. Why pay MS when you can get a better
    product for nothing. (Except there does not seem to be a really good free
    Java IDE - at least not that I've heard of).

    For Server side development, at least, I recommend Java. It is unfortunately
    true, that on the desktop side, Java is slow. I just wrote a desktop Java
    program which takes about 24 hours to import some large text files to a database.
    I'm pretty sure the VB equivalent would work in 8 hours. Typical server-side
    processing is not likely to produce any noticeable speed difference, however.
