View Full Version : Java the backbone of web-industry ?

Ok, I participated in a software competition & exhibition. There were this bunch of programming students, who asked me why I hadn't built my software in Java (i wrote it in VC++ 6).

Then, we started discussing JAVA - yea right! :cool:

They said that Java forms the backbone of the internet, which i think is not the true.

So, would guys give me your opinion. Has java actually become such a crucial part of the web ?

Personally, I don't think you can any language or technology etc. the "Backbone of the internet." I believe the end-user is.

I would venture to say that you can call TCP/IP the backbone of the internet. Java is important but to call it a backbone is to give it to much credit. Although Java is much more important then C is for the internet.

Sure... after all, if we didn't have Java, then we wouldn't have Yahoo Graffitti, which is, my friends, the backbone of the internet. :)

Really, 'backbone of the internet' is a bit broad. It would probably be more appripriate to say that the internet is the backbone of Java.
