Hey plz help me java better ya .net ya oracle??
10 Reasons Why dotNET Is Better Than Java
This post is
prompted by a post by SANDIP when he said something like "Java Is
Dead" and some people were like attacking him for expressing his view.
been a fan of the Java technology for quite some time now. I remember
literally copying a Java book when I didn't have the money to buy it.
one thing I discovered with technology is that it's not always about
love but it's more about power.
The bitter truth is when I compare
java technology with CLI (popularly known as .NET), I see that Java is
less powerfull in many areas.
I'll be using the words CLI and
.NET interchangeably refferring to any implementation of the CLI (.NET,
Mono or dotGnu)
This are some of my points.
1- In .NET you
have a choice of languages to code with (C#,VB.NET, Java,Boo,Python
e.t.c), producing the same type of compiled code but in Java one is
limited to the java language. One may argue that jython is an
alternative, but even the creator of jython who later created it's .NET
version called IronPython admitted that .NET is a more powerful
2, NET prgrams run at native speed while java is
interpreted which makes java slower.Although java has Just In Time
compilation but it stills run slower. With .NET you are not limited to
JIT but have the option AOT or ahead of time compilation if you want to
eliminate startup delays.
3. Calling native code in java is not a
very clean process. You need to generate some stub files which makes
the whole process cumbersome and dirty. In .NET you just declare that
you are calling a native function from a specified library and just
start calling it.
4. .NET languages are richer than Java. They
have object oriented feature that are absent in java e.g
5. Java GUI programs look alien on
the host operating system. Even if you use the OS's theme you still
notice that the java widgets look out of place.
6. .NET in the
form of Mono has brought a whole revolution on the linux desktop in form
of great applications like beagle, tomboy, diva, iFolder, banshee
e.t.c. This is something that java has failed to do despite the fact
that it's been there long
7. Many programs that
would have been difficult to develop with java have been developed with
.NET things like compilers (Mono's C# and VB.NET) 3D game engines (unity
game engine) e.t.c
8. The CLI is an open standard maintained by
an independent standards organization (E.C.M.A) while java is still
governed by SUN microsystems.Even though java has recently been
open-sourced, it's future will still be highly influenced by SUN.
You can code on the .NET platform using Java but you cannot code on
Java platform using any of the .NET languages.
10. Using Mono's
IKVM to call java code from .NET or convert java classes to .NET
assemblies. This is so efficient that large java programs like the
eclipse I.D.E have been runned on .NET.
This is not an exhaustive
list but I believe 10 points are enough to send the message.
more thing, feel free to criticize my views or even flame me.
