Oracle’s Purdy talks Java, C++, and JDK 7

Mike Pontacoloni Profile: Mpontacoloni

Oracle’s Cameron Purdy spoke about Java and C++ in a presentation at TheServerSide Java Symposium Thursday. Purdy explained some of the advantages Java has over C++, and how these advantages helped Java become a more popular programming language.

Some particular reasons Purdy gave were that C++ lacked a sufficient standard type system and that garbage collection with Java made it easier to “plug things together without explicit contracts.”

Purdy also looked ahead to JDK 7. He said that JDK 7 will include features which make it better suited to use in distributed environments. He also said that the NIO.2 File System in JDK 7 includes pluggable files systems.
