Java "Java is a programming language that allows developers to write once and deploy everywhere - from high-end gaming desktops to smartphones. Its OS-agnostic and widespread nature is one of its strongest selling points, but one area where it can fall flat is performance. Generally, Java applications are not going to perform as well as native applications written for a specific OS. However, thanks to Project Sumatra that performance gap may soon become less of an issue."

The difference is that you can write "perfect" java code and still your app will be potentially vulnerable (outside your control), whereas in C[++] it's all about the written code (under your control)


Can you enlighten me how are you able to have more control over libc, libstdc++, msvcrt,... than Java developers have over JRE?
