P: 151
Hi,

I m C++ programmer (2.5 years exp). Now i m learning java since i found there is limited scope in C++ for application programmer. So i m learning java and developing web applications with JAVA beans.
Is this a right move to switch from C++ to Java and build career in this field?


This is general question so i need some suggestion from experienced programmers.

In my experience most of the deal is how usable, maintenable, powerful etc are the libraries frameworks and oter resources you need for your work in the two languages. Writing low level routines is an exception rather than the norm for most job positions, so intrinsic language advantages or disvantages rarely kicks in in making the difference on the real job.

Java is pure language as compared to c++. there are many concepts which are bit different in c++ than in java... therefore working with it is more easier... and in my opinion one will always try learning new things..
