How I Really Feel About Java

I realized recently that you just read my blog you might get the, incorrect, impression that I really dislike Java. I am, fundamentally, an idealist and that makes it hard for me to ignore the rough edges and inconsistencies in any technology I use (even ones I love).

I just wanted to make it clear that overall I think Java is fine. You can get certainly get stuff done in Java and it is a more productive environment than C/C++. There is no doubt that Java works (and there is a lot to be said for that), but I think it could be quite a bit better than it currently is.

So, Java is not my favorite language, but I don’t really hate it, either.
