Time Comparing between Java and C++ Software


This paper construct a comparison between two main software’s used in programming applications that are Java and C++, the comparison operation includes the time needed to perform some algorithm i.e. speed of operation, flexibility to adjusting some code, and efficiency. The same code is used to compare between the two software to determine which one is better. It is found that C++ needs less time to execute the same code comparing with Java. Java needs about 10% excess time to execute the same code segment comparing to C++.
