Out of all the programming languages I've used up until now (more than a dozen) Java definately ranks on the first place in terms of hatred…

Have you used objective-C?

Nope, the syntax alone has kept me from using that abomination. (Apart from the fact that IMHO ObjC is completely useless if you aren't using a Mac…)

I don't even know it's there most of the time. I only install it for websites.

Fire? Nuke that bitch.

Java should have never existed in the first place. This is the one time I hope in some distant future, MS open sources .NET (more so C#) so it can be used anywhere and on anything.

Java sucks. Plain and simple.

Prefer C#. I don't mind it as much as how it's used in frameworks and such, getting a web app running with it is much more of a headache than in C#. Tried using Spring Roo, what a headache, took hours just to set it up right. And don't even try to combine different Java packages, try integrating Spring and Google App Engine. Like I said, I'll take C# and ASP.NET MVC for web development over Java packages any day.

Why? Because you dislike it?

It's an awesome introductory language, versatile and works on nearly any platform.

I used to like Java and then Java 1.5 happened. IDEs aren't an issue because I only ever use either Vim or Visual Studio. :)

P.S. I do feel that 1.7 and 1.8 are on the road to redemption but why would anyone choose Java now over C# when they have a free choice?

For me it's an amazing language to work with. One of my clients uses AS400's and I wrote a credit card processing system using java, I could write and compile on my mac then upload to the as400. It also means that windows users can also run the same code. This just isn't possible unless you have the time to learn PRG or COBAL, now that's something nobody wants to do :) .

introductory? a intro language is C, so you can learn basic programming rules (and have a usual pointer headache). a introductory language, the way u ment it, is C# since VB.NET is getting left behind.

A programming language is a means to an end. I enjoy solving problems. If Java makes that easy for me, then it's a good language.

You can learn basic programming rules using almost any language?

To clarify, I'm talking about from an OOP standpoint too. I honestly believe Java's one of the best languages for introducing the concept of objects to someone who has never done any programming before.

My opinions are based upon experience, and for me Java has been a joy to use... So far...
