I wouldn't go adding FUD and a general display of ignorance about how Java works, how fast it is, or soft/hard realtime programming, in a thread from people interested in getting Java on the device...
Heh... You misunderstand. Most of the people interested in getting it on the device operate under the thinking that it can solve all problems. Seriously. You even went so far as to prove that claim I just made, calling what I put up as FUD.
I want it on the device as much as you all- but I'm just unwilling to glorify the language like you appear to be.
It's not the best thing since sliced bread- and I should know, I've done about 10 years of enterprise level Java coding over the years. I've seen some pretty impressive things done with it. Even by my own hand.
However, It doesn't handle things like securities market transaction processing well. The GC stalls out time critical stuff at inopportune times. The medical device industry won't touch Java, .Net, or Android for anything that could be deemed life critical- quite simply, the FDA and similar organizations, won't cerify the stuff because it's NOT deterministic in the slightest.
Not FUD. Facts, unfortunately.
