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.

I don't think a buggy java application doing the things you mention will survive it any better than C++.

I doubt many java developers setup exception handlers to recover gracefully (or at all) from a division by 0, an out of bound array access or trying to dereference a null pointer.

The thing is, a simple try {} catch(e){printstack} autogenerated by Eclipse will usually (and often accidentally) catch them and allow the application to go on. As long as you use regular exception instead of specific one, the application will stay open without any additional/intentional work.
