    ... I never said Javascript was a plugin, I said that Oracle's Java has a browser plugin, but that it's basically a cross platform API.

    It took me less than a week to port a fairly complex Objective-C app I'd written for iOS to Java (in order to create a compatible, browser-based version of it) due to those programming languages being so similar.  I can't imagine how long it would take to port that same code to be a web app which works as well in the multitude of web browsers out there (if it'd even be possible).



    About the browser engine cross platform stuff, Yes, the web standards bodies NEED to force these engines to support the same things, and if they want a special function added, it needs to be approved. That's one of the main problems with the Web, it's too easy for companies to implement propetiary functions.

    Abject nonsense.





    Yup, spoken like a true FANBOY. Can you site just one credible source that says the number was fabricated? Since you have been "paying attention" please educate me. You know what FANBOY, I won't hold my breath on that one because you clearly pulled that statement out of your...

    I never read past this opening ignorant rant of yours. Clearly you're hurting for attention and need a shoulder to cry on.

    If they do that, then you'll end up with web technologies moving forward at the same glacial pace as C++.  Bogged down in steering committees and politics.  This is one of the reasons why NeXT/Apple chose Objective-C over C++ -- because they could move it forward at their own pace.


     


    But, I agree, proprietary technologies have proven to be a hinderance to the web over the years.

    Java is huge, and it's not going anywhere. As another poster mentioned, there are two separate components. Applets (crappy IMO) which run either standalone or on a webpage, and Server Side java. Java is used by the majority of Fortune 500 companies at some level. BUt yeah, i agree.. applets are giving the Java language a bad name these days.
