    Java as a security programming language

    Hey everyone,
    I'm starting a 400 level class next semester and it's going to focus on Java for E-apps. I'm just wondering if Java would be a good language to have under your belt for security programming.

    Do many people in the security industry use Java often or do they mostly use C/C++/Perl etc.

    Also, any ideas on security apps I could write in Java? Anything useful?

    Just curious -

    The cool thing about Java applets is that they are executed inside a "sandbox". They are being executed in an entirely blocked off area of memory so they cannot do malicious damage.
    At least that's what I remember from my intro Java course (I may be wrong)
