PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There's an article making the rounds right now about how applications on iOS crash more often than applications on Android. I'm not going to detail the entire methodology - the article itself does so - but it does raise an interesting talking point about how both mobile operating systems handle application crashes and updates.

Java is not native so when it segfault, it just throw and exception and go on. While it may corrupt the application state to the point it still explode shortly after, it is not because of the fault itself, but the consequences of it. C++ application wont survive calling a method from an invalid pointer, array overflow and division per 0. It will close instantaneously.

That said, Java do suck and I code in C/C++/Lua when I can.
