    Can anyone tell me what two different circumstances can Java or C++ be used for and also why one would be better than the other in that circumstance?

    Hope someone can help me out on this as I have managed to confuse myself at college :cry

    thanx guys!

    Java can be embedded into webpages (not sure C++ can, but I don't think so) as applets.

    C++ is architecture dependant, so you'd have to rewrite (or recompile) if you wish to switch to a different processor, like from x86 (Intel/AMD) to PowerPC (IBM). Java is architecture independent, so you write the code once, and Java's Virtual Machine makes it work on any processor that supports a virtual machine.

    Java is usually slower at startup, as the Virtual Machine must start, and then execute the code, whereas C++ begins executing immediately.

    yes, I am sure they will get much harder, I am sure you will see me on again in the not too far future.... I suffer memory problems so some of it can just go straight over my head, I accuse people of not telling me things and doesn't always go down well, so this forum is very helpful for me

    thanks, time for a :drink to celebrate my distinction papers (so far so good)

    My memory doesn't keep everything any more either. If I could replace the RAM, I'd be in much better shape for remembering things...

    No problem, come back when the next problem strikes, but I don't know if I coan handle it.
