Whats so great about Java ?
 
I always have a feeling that Java is one of most over rated language and So what I would like to know, is what makes Java so great?

One of the key feature of Java is cross OS Support but I have never seen any industrial application which needs to be working on both and no one I have came across who would work on something which works on neither at bottleneck performance ?

You need to outline scope of projects which you wish to discuss. Mobile, WEB, Desktop? Other advantages advantages can be discussed find in such areas like applications architecture design, documentation and support.

What do you mean bu Machine independent and do we actually need machine independency. I Havent came across a single PC where my C++ code did not work and I was talking about the software being developed for millions

Hello, I have just started learning Java (Im a complete noob with Java) for my degree and I was thinking, what is so great about Java?

Initially I thought Java wasn't all that great, just an over rated language that requires the user to download the apropriate software for it to even work. But all the new browsers have it built in allready (as far as I know) and there are no cross browser compatibility issues... When I thought about that, it was like the first sip of a cold beer after a long days work.

So what I would like to know, is what makes Java so great?

What can you do with it that you cant do with other languages?

How heavily suported is it by browsers now?

and finally, could you in theory make a stand alone Java program that you could sell on a CD, and would work on any computer?

Will be good to hear your thoughts
