    The great thing

      Hello, friends!

      I tell you what the main flaw in Java is: it is not functional.

      I tell you functional and object oriented programming languages, like Scala, will be the next generation of programming languages.

      I tell you what language will substitute Java: Scala (http://www.scala-lang.org/).

      Cheers!

          I think this is far from the greatest flaw in java.

          The greatest flaw with java ( & programming languages in general) is that they do not do what we want them to do. Basically all bugs are a result of programs not being able to figure out what to do in states that we haven't accounted for.

          Wouldn't it be great if there were not even a possibility of getting a NullPointerException?
