Urgent: Which is the best for developing? Java or .Net?

Hi everyone,

Can anyone tell me which is the best to develop sforce, Java or .Net?

Any different between two of them for development?  any advantages or disadvantages?

Thank you for the help.



Hi Daniel,

I'll chime in here.  Both environments technically provide equivalent capabilities as far as the sforce API is concerned.  I think the question is really which is best for the particular needs of your solution.  Both require supporting code (java SDK/JRE versus .Net Framework), so that is not a big issue.  Java has deeper fault handling characteristics than does .Net.  .Net is better for writing windows client applications. 

So, the decision as to which platform to standardize your development on really does not include a consideration of the sforce API as both do web services with relative ease.
