    Heh, low blow .

    Actually, the number of java programmers is increasing. That said, hopefully I'll be writing games in C++ when I get a job programming.

    Perhaps reality is illuding you, but you may want to check this out.

    http://techupdate.zdnet.com/techupda...804967,00.html

    Which includes these two paragraphs...

    "SAN FRANCISCO -- Developers using Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Java programming language will outnumber those using the C/C++ languages by next year, the findings of a series of studies conducted by Evans Data Corp. and released late Wednesday show. "

    and

    "Initial surveys have shown that only a small portion of developers intend to try Microsoft Corp.'s C# language, which is relatively new, and those developers will predominantly be ones already using Microsoft programming languages, Garvin said. There is no evidence of any significant adoption to date, she added. "

    Sure, the study could be wrong in that there will still be more C++ programmers than Java programmers in 2002, and even beyond, but Java is still a very popular langauge, and its popularity in business, for now at least, is increasing.

    C/C++ have more advantages than Java.

    Listen to this statistic:

    The most used and most popular language in the world is Visual Basic.

    What do you have to say about that? Does this mean that Visual Basic is a better language than all of the others? No, it just means that it is easier to learn. And maybe that's the case with Java. Just because there are going to be more programmers definitely doesn't mean that it is a better language.

    Garfield you should look into C#. Most people can't do this although VS.NET has become available to more people. Once you see this language there will be no other language, except the ancestor C++.

    I am not arguing the merits of Java, simply trying to show that it has a future. Can you give some evidence the VB is used more than C/C++ in business? I was searching google and the best I could find was a graph of programming langauge usage on sourceforge.

    VB.NET is going to be used for some high level tasks. C# will consume VB programmers and as soon as the outside world sees C#, it's user base will multipy. Also, MS is now going after college students. There is way more to say but I don't feel like it. I want to read more C#.

    Look in here http://www.planet-source-code.com/xq...vb/default.htm under "What is Visual Basic". I didn't say it was the most popular in business, but it might be. It doesn't specify.
