Basic Comparison between Java and Dot Net Framework

JAVA is a high level programming language originally developed by Sun Micro-systems and released in 1995. The language inherit much of its functions from C and C++ but has a simpler object model and fewer low-level facilities. Java applications are typically compiled to byte code that can run on any kind Java virtual machine (JVM) regardless of computer architecture.

The Microsoft .NET Framework is a software technology that run on the Microsoft operating systems. The main purpose of the .NET Framework is to develop the windows, web and mobile services. It contains a huge library of pre-defined solutions to common programming problems and a virtual machine that manages the execution of programs written specifically for the framework.

Basic comparison between JAVA and DOT NET technology

  1. Java is developed by the Sun Micro-system whereas Dot Net Framework is developed by Microsoft Corporation.
  2. Java supports connected architecture but Dot Net supports disconnected architecture.
  3. Java is platform independent (Programs written in java runs on any Operating system). but .Net program can run on windows Operating systems only.
  4. Java is best choice for open Choice software development. Dot Net is also free but its official development IDE(Microsoft Visual Studio)is paid.
  5. Development in Java is slower as compare to Microsoft visual Studio development.
  6. Java application development can be done on less configuration system. but in Dot Net we need a high configuration system.
  7. Java is only limited to java. But Dot net communicates with many 36 different languages. like C, C++ C#, VB etc…
