Structured Programming Language
C# is a proprietary product of Microsoft and Java is an open source language of Oracle. C# is far more expressive, as a language, than Java. The functional constructs like LINQ and its features used in C# and the convenience of things like delegates and auto-properties are really nice. But Java has a really compelling ecosystem of well-designed open-source frameworks and packages that mostly make up for the crummy language. Java is dealing with dependent libraries with the help of tools like Maven or Ivy which is more pleasant than in C#.
Compared to C#, Java requires a lot more boilerplate code that doesn’t do much for readability or maintenance, other the fact that everyone is used to the same level of tedium for every kind of problem, and nobody finds I surprising.
In Java, you will probably spend more time mastering various frameworks than you’ll spend learning the language, because the language is really simple and almost minimalist. The frameworks are often tacitly trying to work around limitations in the language. In C#, programmer convenience and expressiveness are more highly valued than uniformity. In Java you can spot poor coding practices very quickly. In more expressive languages, you may have to spend more time understanding what the side effects of a particular choice of syntax might be. It is easier to write codes in C# than in Java because of its libraries like when creating Windows form application.
Java can be run in any operating system as compare to the C# language. C# reliability is limited to its Microsoft operating system.
C# is not a free product as compared to the open source language Java. In addition, the operating system minimum requirement when using C# is Windows version. While in Java, it can be ran in...
