Java We don't cover the development platform wars as much as we should. But wherever you fall in the epic battle between .NET, Java, and LAMP, you'll probably enjoy the video after the jump.

I know it's easy to be confused. But Java is the name of both a programming language and a platform

You have Java - the programming language (like C#) and Java the platform (like .net)

Java (the programming language) runs on JVM, which is similar to Microsofts CLR and can run many different langauges (like Scala, Python, Ruby, PHP and others)
