10 Reasons Why dotNET Is Better Than Java

The bitter truth is when comparing java technology with CLI (popularly known as .NET), you’ll see that Java is less powerful in many areas.

I’ll be using the words CLI and .NET interchangeably refferring to any implementation of the CLI (.NET, Mono or dotGnu)
These are some of my points.

  1. In .NET you have a choice of languages to code with (C#,VB.NET, Java,Boo,Python e.t.c), producing the same type of compiled code but in Java one is limited to the java language. One may argue that jython is an alternative, but even the creator of jython who later created it’s .NET version called IronPython admitted that .NET is a more powerful technology.
  2. .NET prgrams run at native speed while java is interpreted which makes java slower.Although java has Just In Time compilation but it stills run slower. With .NET you are not limited to JIT but have the option AOT or ahead of time compilation if you want to eliminate startup delays.
  3. Calling native code in java is not a very clean process. You need to generate some stub files which makes the whole process cumbersome and dirty. In .NET you just declare that you are calling a native function from a specified library and just start calling it.
  4. .NET languages are richer than Java. They have object oriented feature that are absent in java e.g properties,delegates,generics.
  5. Java GUI programs look alien on the host operating system. Even if you use the OS’s theme you still notice that the java widgets look out of place.
  6. .NET in the form of Mono has brought a whole revolution on the linux desktop in form of great applications like beagle, tomboy, diva, iFolder, banshee e.t.c. This is something that java has failed to do despite the fact that it’s been there long before .NET
  7. Many programs that would have been difficult to develop with java have been developed with .NET things like compilers (Mono’s C# and VB.NET) 3D game engines (unity game engine) e.t.c
  8. The CLI is an open standard maintained by an independent standards organization (E.C.M.A) while java is still governed by SUN microsystems.Even though java has recently been open-sourced, it’s future will still be highly influenced by SUN.
  9. You can code on the .NET platform using Java but you cannot code on Java platform using any of the .NET languages.
  10. Using Mono’s IKVM to call java code from .NET or convert java classes to .NET assemblies. This is so efficient that large java programs like the eclipse I.D.E have been runned on .NET.

Reasons Why Website Design is Important For Your Company

web design

Why is it important to have a website design for your company you may think? One of the key things is that it can promote your business to a wide audience and therefore generate lots more business. Read on for more reasons to consider web design sites for your company.

One important reason to get a website for your company is that you can promote the services to a global audience. Being without a website may get you business in the community, but ultimately it can be very frustrating if people hear of your services by word of mouth and then are not able to access any information about them.

In this busy day and age, people don’t always want to or have the time to call and make inquiries as they often have to go through voice mail and leave a message and then when the business gets back to them it isn’t always at a convenient time. In the end they may give up and lose business.

Having a website allows them to read all about you twenty four hours a day and seven days each week so they may browse when the kids are in bed and decide that they want to use your services.

Having a site gives your company a professional, polished look and enables potential clients to see your services at a glance. Websites that are well designed and maintained will reflect a similar level of service and give the impression that you are highly efficient and competent.

If possible you should consult with a professional website designer who can translate your requirements and preferences into a compatible website. This can be functional too enabling you to add people to mailing lists and pay for products online. It is a great way to build customers and advertise your services. A website is a must have.

Why Java Is Better Than Other Programming Languages And Byte Code Concept

Java is fast because of JIT compiler. Just In Time compiler stores the repeated code in its cache memory and in byte code where repeated code is used , instead of loading that code again from memory JIT use it from its cache memory and safe time and space and make execution fast.

What Makes Java different from other programming Language?

Why Java Is Better Than Other Programming Languages ?

  • First of all java is a open source programming language created by Sun Microsoft overtaken by oracle .Its source code is available for free inside every JDK ( Java Development Kit)
  • Java is a platform Independent: – Platform independent means java can run on any computer irrespective to the hardware and software dependency. Means Java does not depend on hardware means what type of processor , RAM etc.  Java will run on a machine which will satisfy its basic needs .
  • Java Is a Secure Language : The Byte Code Concept separates java from all other language. As we know Byte Code is set of symbols created by sun Microsoft which are generated after the compilation of Program. This byte code is actually encoded source code that human cannot understand and that Byte code is converted to machine code by Java Runtime Environment. This Byte code is executed by java runtime environment which consist of Byte code loader which loads the byte code into memory and then Byte code verifier which verifies the Byte code and look for any extra symbols and code which does not resembles to the standards and throws unexpected code way and makes java byte code error free and secure.Java is fast because of JIT compiler. Just In Time compiler stores the repeated code in its cache memory and in byte code where repeated code is used , instead of loading that code again from memory JIT use it from its cache memory and safe time and space  and make execution fast. Below is the graphical representation of java program.

  • “ Compile Once and Run Forever ” is the famous tag line of java and yes it is very true this all is possible because of Byte code as once byte code is generated you can use  that byte code and can run that program in any operating system , every operating system’s java runtime environment will convert that Byte Code into machine code and wll give you your require output and because of this Java Byte Code is named as Portable Code or P-code.

Java-Virtual-Machine

Due to its Byte code is in Bytes, java program takes very less memory on hard disk  and therefore java technology is Portable also. (byte code concept)

The Above features cannot be found in any other language, because of the above features java is used almost everywhere and in every application no matter its mobile application or web. Till date there is no programming language more secure than java .

Hopefully the story of  java and its byte code is cleared to you .

Why VB.net Is Better Than C#

C

C# is a time-consuming programming language, as you keep writing a semicolon at the end of every line and that’s the first advantage why VB.net is better than C#.

Both languages are object-oriented languages, VB.Net have many advantages over C# as it can complete what you are writing better than C#.

C# is always unhappy when you write something it keep on showing errors, you also need to always build (ctr+shift+B) the application to know if there are any errors.

In the other hand VB.net pop up errors automatically so you don’t need to build the application  to know if you have errors.

Also the text editor take care of the capital and small letter opposite to C#.

You can make the same application using C# or VB but you will save a lot of time developing an application using VB.net

If you are a C# addict try considering writing programs using VB.net as it will help you write better programs, develop applications faster and you will be more business oriented.

Why VB.net Is Better Than C#

  1. VB helps you build faster applications
  2. VB helps you completing statements better than C#
  3. C# is always unhappy and you always rebuild your application to know if you have any errors.
  4. Both build the same applications.
  5. you can consider VB as business oriented programming language because it is faster than any other language.

In short both languages are similar to each others but since C# was the first object-oriented language before VB that’s why it is more famous than any other language.
