Why I will NEVER touch Java again.

Some of you know that once upon a time, I was a big Java programmer … I loved Java! But that was a long time ago and I will never go back. I left Java because it became a big bloated monster, as the effects of corporate design-by-committee took hold.

… When that happens, it is the death of anything really!

Actually, I can quickly summarize why I left Java for PHP … first the Java code:

public class verbosity {

public static void main(String[] args) {

System.out.println("This sucks because it takes too many lines of code!");



Now the same thing with PHP:

echo"OMG! One line of code! One line ...";

Yes, PHP is a little bit more verbose OOP style .. but I am just making a point that Java is very verbose.

Enough said.
