can we code Force.com with java or python?


is the programming language of the Force.com platform limited to apex? can i write a native Force.com app using languages like Java or python?


You can only use Apex on Force.com itself. Salesforce also offers a seperate PaaS platform - Heroku - that you can use to develop in Java, Python etc. You could potentially develop your Java/Python solution on Heroku and then integrate it with Force.com using the SOAP or REST API, but that all depends on your specific use case. Hope this helps.


Apex is not a general purpose language. are we be able to port a java web application into apex easily?

If i'm not wrong the force.com native platform is only meant for some development linked with CRM business and we can't use it for some serious web application development right?
