    your question is definitely not an easy one and probably there is no a simple
    answer to it. java is an OO programming language, its use is up to the programmer.
    As any other programming language it has its strengths and weaknesses.
    Java is still mainly seen as a language for internet and web related programming,
    this does not mean that you can not write applications using java, but it
    has to be said java is not the perfect language for developing desktop applications.
    There are many exciting things you can do with java starting with applets
    which are small programs that can run in a java enabled browser but applets
    are largely thought to be out of date now. To cut it short, java is very
    efficient for internet applications especially server-side programming, e.g.
    you can write servlet and EJBs to run on the server, you can use java RMI
    and CORBA for network programming.
    The Beauty of java is that it is a clean language and many things can be
    done in java much more easily than in other languages.
    Java is a young and evolving language so expect more.

    Java is also great for device programming.

    One absolute "killer" employment of Java is when you need to be able to deploy
    a client application to remote users (and keep it "automagically" updated)
    in a rapid, transparent way. Wrapping a desktop app (e.g., main class extending
    JFrame) in a signed-code applet that does nothing but launch the main app
    provides a way for users to obtain the client over the internet/intranet,
    just by hitting a URL from their browser. Properly configured, and with
    a one-time permission from the user, the app can then do I/O, socket, and
    any other kinds of activities that any other desktop application can do -
    no sandbox restrictions! In a "trusted" environment - particularly intranets
    - this solves an incredible number of problems. And the client can be ultra-light
    compared to a C++ program because most of the core code is in the VM.

    Hope this helps

    That is interesting. So you're saying that java Applets that are
    executed by the signed applet code inherit the signature and trust
    levels?

    And are there any places out there that will sign code for a nominal
    fee or even freely?
