    Smile What the the Pros of Java vs. other languages?

    I've been studying java for about a week now and going through manuals, and was wondering what the advantages of java are over other languages such as C++, Visual Basic/Script, and Action script.

    Great question. Java's primary strengths:
    - Very easy compared to most languages
    - Write once, run anywhere (no mac to pc, pc to mac problems)
    - Automatic memory management
    - Complete class library included
    - It isn't .net
    :D

    Java FTW!
