    Unhappy C++ v. Java


    What are the main advantages / disadvantages of delvelopment in C++ or Java? I know that C++ files will be biger, but how much faster will it be than Java? Are there other issues?

    Cheers, Dejan

    Performance differences may or may not matter depending on what the application does.

    In general, Java is somewhat easier to learn and master than C++.

    On phones that allow also C++ application development, you generally have access to much more (OS features & functionality) than what you have from within the Java environment.

    That's pretty much it.

    There are also some other issues.

    You need to be already a good C++ programmer to code for Symbian platform. Because it uses a few nonstandard idioms that might take a while to get used to.

    If you have a good grasp of C++ then you might have found those idioms in some other places before.

    Java of course is easier to learn and you can make your game/application available in more phones than just the ones with Symbian support.
