Please refer to my post in "C++, Java and simple stuff."

What do I want to do? I don't know. I'm not working from a project spec or an RFP. I'm just wondering want I might consider to advance my understanding of handling digital content.

I don't wish to enter the .Net environment. I'ld like to maintain some independance from any vendor.

How might I compare? I visit the Borland site regularly and the newsgroups, but I can't figure the difference. For example, what's the difference between applets and components? I'm interested in writing simple-minded and discrete apps - both at home on Win 98, and at work, Win NT4 and Win 2000.

Thanks.

Thanks JBuilder.

I appreciate the explanations. I'll have to define better what I want.

My motivation is basically irrelevant. I'm a Borland loyalist - from Turbo Pascal, through Paradox and Quattro. I'ld like to continue with one of their products, but don't understand where they'll take me.

Some people travel, others buy tools. I like tools. Makes me feel less dependant.

But nowadays, things are so much more complicated. Don't know.

Thanks much,
Brian

I'm not *quite* sure what you mean by 'digital content'. But the core difference in C++ Builder and JBuilder are night and day. While both languages are Object-Oriented the tools themselves are often for very different needs.

If you want to write windows-specific applications then C++ Builder (or Delphi) is for you. With C++ Builder you can develop COM objects, ISAPI DLL's, etc to write web services and server-side business objects. The kicker here is that they're all platform-specific (Windows).

If you want to write application objects, web services, etc that are more platform neutral then you definately want to look at JBuilder. With JBuilder you can develop Java-based applications that will run anywhere that you can host a Java 2 Runtime environment (in fact JBuilder itself is a perfect example of this). You can develop java-enabled web-based applications (using JSPs and servlets), write server side business objects (called EJBs) and debug against those objects all within JBuilder.

Now you did ask a specific question about applets vs. components. Applets are simple Java applications that run within a web page. They *can* do lots of neat things, but they are (contrary to what you might read) an advanced topic for a newcomer to Java. Take it from someone who learned that the hard way. Components are application code that is usually part of a larger application environment and don't usually run by themselves.

Let me know if I can answer anything else for you.
