Programming Careers: Java vs C++
February 6, 2007 11:02 AM Subscribe
What is the market like for Java programmers vs C++ programmers? Is there a difference in salary to start? How about with 5 years of experience in one language? Is there a growing trend in Java (SE/EE/ME) vs C++?

I'm trying to do some research on careers programming in primarily Java vs primarly in C++. While C++ certainly isn't going away anytime soon, I get the feeling that Java is becoming the "hotter" language in terms of job oportunities and market trends. I'm interested in the financial implications of each language, not debates over which language is better (real programmers all use C anyway, right? lol)
