To use Java or Flash?

  powerless 15:19 PM 09 Jun 03

Currenly having a go with "1 cool Menu FX Tool" to create a Menu for a webpage.

Easy to use, but when you start to finish the menu it gives you a choice of saving (and then using) the menu as JAVA or FLASH.

Whats the prefered format?

Any advantages uses flash or java?

Have actually inserted it into a webpage and it works.

But before i finalise it, java or flash?

it doesn't particularly matter, so choose either.

Things to bear in mind:

1. Java is a 'language' Flash is a software product.

2. Java is object oriented, Flash isn't.

Web designers like Flash because they can design Flash animations themselves, whereas most of them can't write Java - therefore you see tens of thousands of Java applets which have been written by third parties and made available as downloads for use on websites.

The Java versus Flash argument has been going on for years - certainly since I really got involved in web design, and that was in 1996. Everyone has their point of view, and the best way I can sum it up is by saying that Java is probably better, but Flash is much easier.
