Famous Quotes Containing Java:


C++ and Java, say, are presumably growing faster than plain C, but I bet C will still be around.

-- Dennis Ritchie (American Scientist)

If you're talking about Java in particular, Python is about the best fit you can get amongst all the other languages. Yet the funny thing is, from a language point of view, JavaScript has a lot in common with Python, but it is sort of a restricted subset.

-- Guido van Rossum (Dutch Scientist)

After all, C++ isn't a perfect match for Java's design aims either.

-- Bjarne Stroustrup (Danish Scientist)

However, when Java is promoted as the sole programming language, its flaws and limitations become serious.

-- Bjarne Stroustrup (Danish Scientist)

-- Dennis Ritchie (American Scientist)

Now, it's my belief that Python is a lot easier than to teach to students programming and teach them C or C++ or Java at the same time because all the details of the languages are so much harder. Other scripting languages really don't work very well there either.

-- Guido van Rossum (Dutch Scientist)

I've never worked with the Java community.

This evolution may compromise Java's claim of being simpler than C++, but my guess is that the effort will make Java a better language than it is today.

-- Bjarne Stroustrup (Danish Scientist)

I was interested in Java the beginning, but the problem with Java is you do have to switch your platform.

-- Miguel de Icaza (Mexican Scientist)

Mark Hammond is working in this area, with Windows Scripting Host. It is definitely an area where Python fits almost perfectly. That's quite independent from Java, actually.
