I gave an example of an enterprise making a bad decision.... like you are in defending java when it's terribly flawed.
Just becuase a company uses it and "gets along fine" with it doesn't mean it's good.
they may say they are getting along fine with it to please shareholders or whatever when they really might hate it...
OK, how is Java a bad decision for enterprise, what option do you actually have ? because this should be entertaining.
and yes, enterprise programming not only relies almost exclusively on Java, it's the best choice for them. and they don't just get along fine, they are far more stable, reliable and performance oriented than any systems you use.
I''ve yet to see ANY valid arguments why Java is bad.

cat, don't bother with them. Nothing you say is going to change their mind.
This will be my last post on anything Notch related, as far as I'm conserned he can build his own OS if he doesn't like what MS is doing, of course that OS would be built on Java so It would be funny to see how that works out for him.
of course it's your last post, you just realized you don't have an argument and can't argue it. it's not about changing minds, I don't think Java s best for everything, and I think it's a terrible choice for a game, I don't however think Java is universally bad, Not do I believe it's only good for enterprise. for enterprise however it's pretty much a defining standard with no real competition in quality or reliability as yet. and for many parts of the world Java is used very reliably for secure bank ID logons. It's chosen for this for the very same reason it's used in enterprise, but is annoying a bit because of the constant requirement of clients to update their java and certain browsers inability to properly communicate with Java.
