    Been doing Java for a while and I like it. However I wouldn't mind trying out .NET just to expand my skillset a bit. I've been doing JSF for the last 8 months or so and I hear it's similar to .NET for the web.

    I have negative feeling about Java language
    Can you be more specific? I'm just curious really as I know it's not perfect.

    Never tried python but I'm taking a course on Ruby on Rails starting September. I feel very comfortable writing web app in java but Ruby on Rails got me interested. Maybe after this I can write my next million dollar plugin for facebook~~

    Seriously.. my 2nd boss raves about .NET and I kept telling him "Either fire me or sign up for training course. Overall, I'm really curious about .NET but I won't study it unless I get paid.

    I been developing java since 1997 and I am quite thankful I got in early. These days, I am more of an architect. Being a Java person has afforded me the best lifestyle I could have hoped for. There are not many fields where you can make 6 figure salary and work a nice 9-5. I also find the technical and people balance quite nice. When I don't want to deal with crazy people at work, I just focus on developing. When I want to do the more of the "human" side of technology, I spend time with users and senior staff.

    I'm with you on that, I want to learn it, but I want my company to send me on the training. My boss had mentioned that early on when I started but I've heard no news of it since (about 8 months ago...). I hear Sharepoint is pretty big these days, apparently pays really well, but I think you need a good .NET background for it.

    We developed with Java for a long time, but then we switched to Groovy. Groovy is simplifying everything.

    Groovy uses all Java packages, but adds its own packages which make programming a lot easier. Groovy-Scripts also work on the JVM and the programming code is a lot shorter and better to understand.

    Unfortunately, the integration in an IDE like Eclipse is still in progress. There is already a plug-in for Eclipse, but it is still in development.

    But you should definitely give it a try.

    Love Java, but lately over the past 12 months I've found myself switching more and more to c++ for desktop based applications. More because of existing code written for them rather than anything java can't do.

    programming is nothing without Java.
    it has some more benefits over some prog languages.. e.g
    Security (The Java 2 Platform takes the security model a step further. It makes security levels and restrictions highly configurable and extends them beyond applets. As of Java 1.2, any Java code, whether it is an applet, a servlet, a JavaBeans component, or a complete Java application, can be run with restricted permissions that prevent it from doing harm to the host system), Performance, Internationalization (Java uses 16-bit Unicode characters that represent the phonetic alphabets and ideographic character sets of the entire world), Dynamic, Extensible Programs, Network-centric Programming,
