    Default Is Java going to be replaced by PHP

    Hi, I was hoping to use Java instead of PHP because I disliked PHP, but I was wondering if anyone thinks java will eventually be replaced with PHP, or why it won't please?

    Java and PHP were designed for different purposes and have different strengths and weaknesses. Neither is going to replace the other.

    Use whatever you know and like, as long as it's an appropriate tool for the job.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but I wouldn't base my entire career on any one language. I thought you were asking about what to use for a project.

    Amen, but also I wouldn't have such paranoid worries. Learn all you can and take a few deep calming breaths.

    Hit the big ones first and learn about 1-2 new ones a year. But this really is a silly question to be frank. You can only learn one at a time, Java is fine to start with, so put your head down, learn it, and then in a year take on another, and stop worrying.

    It isn't panic, it's enthusiasm - and a thoroughly Good Thing.

    The trick is to focus it. As Fubarable and others have said: pick one, put your head down and learn it.

    The answer to your question about what language you might make a career out of is easy. Assuming a normal life span and barring accidents it will be a language that hasn't been written yet. (Except possibly for C which really *does* have legs.)

    If I am correct, Java was designed to be a cross platform programming language where you wouldn't need to adjust any of your code, APIs you were using. (Well, it was originally designed for interactive TV, lol.) It though has APIs for being a service side processing language.

    While PHP was originally designed to be a server side scripting language. "PHP," originally stood for "Personal Home Page tools," now it stands for "PHP HyperText Preprocessor." PHP though has bindings to SDKs like GTK+.
    Good with: C/C++, DarkGDK, PHP, MySQL
    Current reading: The Linux Programming Interface

    What is even sadder is that I am currently reading that book a few chapters a day at work, and I was watching the old bbc show just the other day.
