Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s best to know both.

Working as a consultant, I’ve had to write a lot of code, and rescue a lot of projects in trouble. I’ve never had to fix bad Java code; just add to it. VB code often involves a lot of fixing. Either way, I have to know both.

Where’s the future? It seems that big, well-written systems are being done in Java, and one-guy fast-and-dirty jobs are being written in VB. So, my future (and present) seems to be rewriting VB applications into Java (although neither is my favorite language).

    I think both will coexist for a long time. Both are evolving and improving at a good pace. If MS is the only environment within a company, VB (in general, Visual Studio) is very likely to be used. It has better visual capabilities and better integration with Windows and Office. If there are cross-platform compatibility purposes, java is the choice. But I think it has a longer learning curve than VB.
