Hi to everyone, i am wondering which language (java or c#) can create more robust and scalable application including stuffs such as multiprocessing, multithreading, and of course speed????
Thanks, in advance!!!

The question isn't really between Java and C#. It's between Java, Scala, C#, F#, and some others. The answer is Scala, which compiles to the JVM.

From a purely Java vs. C# language perspective, you would generally prefer to use C# because it has anonymous functions, using blocks, a reasonable collections library (in System.Linq), and no weird special cases for primitive types. However, Scala exists, and the Scala language is better than the C# language, and you should always use it in place of Java. That's assuming you aren't interested in using the .NET API. If you wanted to write a native Windows application, well, you might want C# then. From a multiprocessing/etc perspective they're both similar, but if you _really_ want to scale up you don't want to have to worry about getting a zillion Windows licenses and such, so the JVM rules there :P

I have never looked at performance information, but the general resonance I get from the Internet is that the JVM is faster and better than the .NET vm.

Only to say that choosing one of them doesn't mean you're immediately immune from screwing it up.

A bad design in either language is perfectly capable of turning into a disaster.

Or that your ultimate choice of language(s) should be guided by your detailed requirements and design, and not by some washy "wish-list" containing only two or three things.
