    I don't hate or like Java.... but I do hate pointless threads like this one. We've had enough of these conversations over the past few weeks, if you really want to know peoples opinions, do a search for an old thread. Or better still, go post on a Java board.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    i dont like java for a few unselfish and selfish reasons.
    1. i SERIOUSLY dont like programming in a language named after a drink. as it makes me thrist and i never get anything done, AND i always get weird unconfortable feeling (its strange)
    2. its too much like a little edited version of C++ with some of its own functions and putting things together with a . !
    3. its way to friggin simplized. it takes only a week or two to learn basicaly the entire language and its too simple. and makes some good games, like the ski game on motionplayground. but C++ made Half life, and thats why im sticking with C++
    4. barly any challenege. to make a menu its
    Code:
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.applet.*;
    
    public class frames extends Applet
    {
    	public void init()
    	{
    		Frame f = new Frame("Simple Window");
    		f.add("Center", new Label("Look at the custom smilies menu for referance!", Label.CENTER));
    		f.setSize(this.getSize().width, this.getSize().height);
    		f.setLocation(320,240);
    		MenuBar menu= new MenuBar();
    		this.makeFileMenu(menu);
    		this.makeEditMenu(menu);
    		this.makeOtherMenu(menu);
    		f.setMenuBar(menu);
    		f.show();
    	}
    	private void makeEditMenu(MenuBar mb)
    	{
    		Menu editMenu = new Menu("Edit");
    		editMenu.add("Undo");
    		editMenu.addSeparator();
    		editMenu.add("Cut");
    		editMenu.add("Copy");
    		editMenu.add("Paste");
    		editMenu.add("Clear");
    		mb.add(editMenu);
    	}
    	private void makeFileMenu(MenuBar mb)
    	{
    		Menu fileMenu = new Menu("File");
    		fileMenu.add("New");
    		fileMenu.add("Open...");
    	    fileMenu.addSeparator();
    	    fileMenu.add("Close");
    	    fileMenu.add("Save");
    	    fileMenu.add("Save As...");
    	    fileMenu.addSeparator();
    	    fileMenu.add("Page Setup...");
    	    fileMenu.add("Print");
    	    fileMenu.addSeparator();
    	    fileMenu.add("Quit");
    	    mb.add(fileMenu);
    	}
    	private void makeOtherMenu(MenuBar mb)
    	{
    		Menu smily = new Menu("Smilies");
    		smily.add(":)       Happy");
    		smily.add(":(       Sad");
    		smily.add(";)       Wink");
    		smily.add(";(       Evil Wink");
    		smily.add(">:(      Mad");
    		smily.add(">:)      Evil");
    		smily.add("-_-'     Sorry/Awwww Crap!");
    		smily.add("O-0      Glasses");
    		smily.add("0o0      OMG!");
    		smily.add("^-^      Happy2");
    		smily.add("^_0      Wink2");
    		smily.add(":-D      Big Grin");
    		smily.add(":----    Long face");
    		smily.add(">:-D     Twisted");
    		mb.add(smily);
    	}
    }
    and in c++ its much more complicated. menu items...TOO EASY!
    (this was compiled and proved to run on MSVJ++
    5. who names their company "sun" anyways?


    those are my reasons. good or not. i dont really like java. but im forced to learn it in InfoTech 11.


    *edit*

    thats true too! java was once a language that was going to be used in microchips and used for toasters and other things. but the sad truth was that it was too unstable. java sucks ass and theres no way that they can turn around now without those old fogies at Sun industries going out of buisness for the rest of their lives. they tried to make it good. but they goofed. idiots at sun...hehehe. why the **** would you make the language harder as you improve it!
    this.hide();
    is now implememted and recommended to be this:
    this.setVisible(false);

    they made it so you hafta type more! at least the people who made HTML had some sense. they made the tags OH so much shorter!

    The name java is a ploy. Sun wanted to make the "hot" new programming language that would be the "next big thing."

    Basically, it's a watered down version of c++, but because of the good marketing techniques Sun used to sell Java, it's become huge.

    A lot of colleges are switching over to Java, because it's getting tough to teach something as complex as c++ in such a short period of time.

    Harvard is even trying to make the switch to java, because students are having a tough time with c++, and too many are failing/going below expectations.

    Java has a lot of benefits, like virtual machines to compile on multiple o.s.'.

    Personally I think Java/C# are going to continue to grow in the future. It's still not fast enough(or should I say computers aren't fast enough), nor is it powerful enough to take over c++, and never will.

    Overall, Java's pretty damn good. I'm hoping to get a Java job in the future!
