View Full Version : C++ or Java?
08-06-2003, 04:21 AM
I've been taking different programming classes at school. They just switched over from teaching C++ to Java last year. I was wondering (if there are any programmers among our midst) which is more widely used. Or for that matter is C# used at all yet?
Hmm, do you mind telling us what school you go to, or the level you're at?

Well I'm still in High School, but I have taken one year of C++ plus some study of my own. I took the AP C++ A exam at the end of last year independently and ended up with a score of 5. Java I have now taken one year of also and will take another this coming school year (which prepares us for the AP Java B exam), and so will end my HS years. Does that answer enough or is there something else I can tell?
I was just curious ;)
BTW, they're both standards now (C++ and Java). So if you know them both, you're in good shape. CHoosing which to use is now just a user preference..

Hehe cool *immediately torches Java Book*
Oh...forgot I needed that for next year... :o
i think java *may* be easier, but C++ is more commonly used... :shifty:

Use Microsoft Paint. It's the best program out there right now to create java/c++.

Well I actually thought Java was harder in some areas but that is because I learned C++ first. It is easier in developing classes though, I'll give it that.
lol, hey paint is awesome to kill time in boring history classes.
