Java or C++

Java or C++

Hey everyone , first of all thanks for this nice website i've learned a lot of things lately from here.

I've begun to learn Java lately (I assimilated the basics of methods , classes etc..) i've some experience with programming using Pascal language and some basic knowledge of HTML language (I passed the first 4 challenges easily :p) as well as SQL.

I know that a hacker should learn about pretty much everything , but most of time i am doing some searches in hacking / security websites i always find tutorials , advices and forums about c++ but never Java..
So my question is should i keep on learning Java as a priority or i just begin to learn C++ and use it as my main programming language. What are the advantages of each one (keep in mind that i don't really care which one is harder to learn i just want to know which one would show to be more useful for web hacking , network security etc..)

java has a large built in set of features, whereas in C++ there isn't a lot of hand holding. for anything that needs to get done, you are going to need to use a library or OS api, such as directx or OpenGL for 3d graphics. in java, things like that are built in.

however, C++ is a very good language for you to break the ice with, as i believe requires a little more effort on the programmers end.

I still couldn't figure why c++ seems to be more popular than Java among hacking websites..

Go with what you feel most comfortable with sticking with. Both C++ and Java are good languages. They are also very similar I heard.

Simple. (I just came up with a brilliant analogy).

Say when you were a child you had a golden retriever for a dog. Later in life, you prefer golden retrievers. They're not necessarily better than poodles, but it's because it's what you're used to/have come to love.

Let's just say people use what they are comfortable with. Some are more comfortable with golden retrievers, however, I would not use a golden retriever to program. lol

Like I said. Go with what YOU want to use.

Java is awesome. Its got all the things you will ever need in one place. Also, once you learn it, you can easily learn C++. It literally took me like 2 weeks to become good with C++ after I learned Java.
