I am pretty proficient in C++ and Java. I know that most progrmas could be written in either language. My question for those of you who have been out there for a while, do companies tend to use one programming language for certain types of programs? For example, is C++ typically used for larger applications and Java used more for web based programs?
I tend to like working with Java more, but am not so interested in web development(seems a lot of Java jobs deal with using JSP and servlets). Do I need to choose the type of programming I want to do, then go with the language most widely used, or is it feasible to choose the language I want to work with and be able to get into the type of programming I want?
