My biggest pet peeve is everyone who says Java is shit when they've likely never used it before.

Also...are you trying to start a war :P?

    oh you are on .00001 versions newer of Java than what this app was compiled with.... 99% of app doesn't work

    I don't think it's complete shit, I just don't see a reason why I would use it 😊

    @atomicTurtle every alternative is so much better...java is like a ... Family car... It works and is fine and you'll be happy enough with it .... But if you want fast you, there's better

    The Guys that say Java is slow do you have any documentation on that i have heard that before, but never seem to find any benchmarks 🤔

    @fhaxha it's not to difficult type in Java vs c++ 😉

    As far as I'm aware it's due to java running as a virtual machine it makes it easier to set up and compatible, but in the end it's slower

    @FitzSuperUser the benchmarks i found show little to no difference in performance between C++ and Java that is why i Ask 😀

    Honestly I am willing to give up some speed for portability, modularity, and reflection. I also love it's uncompromising approach on OOP.

    That being said, I use the right tool for the right job. I use Java for one thing. Writing web applications...namely REST services that follow SOA. Because I honestly cannot think of many web application frameworks as mature, feature rich or easy to use as those for Java.

    If I am going for speed (like on an embedded platform) I will go for straight C. If I am writing a cron job, I will use bash or python. If I am writing a UI, I will use JS, HTML 5 and a Chromium browser.
