Java or C#: Top 5 Features of Java which C# misses out


Best among Java & C#:

Java and C# are both equally important weapons of a programmer’s life. If you ask any programmer which is best among both languages. Then that would be the very confused situation for any programmer. But, after long debate programmer will always root for Java.  C# has numerous cool features, but still, when you weight both Java and C# on one scale, Java side always weight more. C# is more frequent and has numerous other features, but it still misses out plenty of features. Well, we have listed the top 5 features that Java developer never gets in C#.

Java vs C# = Java winner

  1. Exceptions are up-to-date.

Java is a perfect system as exceptions are divided into checked and unchecked. Further time compile is determined for the checked exceptions. Certain methods that are likely to throw an exception must be handled using a try/catch block or otherwise, must specify the exception with a throws statement. Without using these statements code will fail to comply. Well, C# doesn’t contain the exceptions, but it also doesn’t have architect purposefully. So, after two decades of debate importance of having checked exceptions is under discussion. That’s why C# developers have to work without them.

  1. Java got inner classes.

Both the languages Java and C# have nested classes, but in Java classes has been divided into two parts. Basically, in languages, we get static nested classes, which is a static member of the outer class and doesn’t have access to instance variables or methods from the outer class. But, in Java one extra nested class called inner classes is available. The inner classes are further categorized into three parts as a member, local and anonymous inner classes. The benefit of inner classes is that they can be made private, unlike classes in general, so that they can only be accessed by an object from the parent class.

  1. Java requires Final Keywords.

Polymorphism is a very cool feature of both languages, which is hard to achieve without virtual methods. A virtual method can be defined as one whose function can be overridden by any class that inherits it. In Java, every method is virtual by default and can be made non-virtual using the final keyword. Contrary, in C#, even methods are non-virtual by default and so a directly equivalent keyword would have no use.

  1. Java has covariant return types.

This is a common feature but has great significance. As Java has covariant return types which save lots of time of writing a new method. In C#, the method needs to be created again which matches the name, argument type and return type of the method in the base class. But, here in Java, you can prevent yourself from the hassle of creating a new method.

  1. Java understood the importance of Enums.

There was a time when Enums were not considered important, but Java understood their importance. Java has a special class designed for the Enums. On the other hand, C# has taken arbitrary methods and fields as inputs making them much more powerful. But, Java understood the importance of Enums perfectly.

Dramatic Verdict:

Okay, well this is a never-ending argument to find the best language among both Java and C#. So, we won’t draw any conclusion here as both languages have their own plus and negative points. That’s why we leave the final discussion in your hands, so make your decision according to your ow
