Actually I like a good debate on C++ and Java. I will be starting a new job in January and I will be writing C and C++ for real time systems. I have been programing in Java for quite about 3 years (still consider myself a novice) and I rather enjoy the language.
I want to learn about Massively Multiplayer Online Game development and I was wondering wether to do it in C++ (help with new job) or in Java (keep up existing skills). I want to make it fast and efficient, so performance is a must.
I have heard so many conflicting opinions. The debates are very good. I am hearing that Java is getting much faster now with newer versions of the JVM. The main thing that dissapoints me is the lack of GOOD text books around for Java game development.
Thanks trentboy for sparking a good debate.
