Not to be impolite, but I have done my share of sipping on the Applet/J2SE/J2EE cool-aid but it just won't stay down. One word "ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException". Imagine what the identifiers look like for the really complicated things like... ah... handling file streams. Its 50 shades of wrong.
Java is slow to write, slow to run and Sun don't let you compile it from source. Its half-open source.
The only supposed good thing about Java is that it stops people from writing difficult to read code by limiting them to spelling everything out in painfully verbose detail.
Or maybe I don't know what I am talking about. Tell me I'm missing something. What is good about Java?
