Java is fundamentally slow. With Java you sacrifice performance to gain reliability. In order of performance: C,C++,Java. Reliability is the reverse.

That is true. Java isn't slow. The latest results of both languages have been proven.

That was what I had been taught theoretically in classes covering the origin of programming languages. In that article by the IT university, C did always rank first. I will admit that it was pretty close in a few cases. For a more accurate statement, maybe I should rephrase to Java is relatively slower than C or C++ and that the original design made Java much slower relatively than it is today. is another link to read about the speed of java. 

Actually i can give you other things that Java has a limitation on: operator overloading,inheriting from more than one parent. Now these cannot be disputed b/c this is was actually made part of the design into the language.

@ Branislav Lazic.

I think Java is a great language. The only reason I am not mentioning the good things about Java is because  xXx_DeveloperJohn_xXx Snipars  asked for the limitations of Java, not the advantages. 

I am not going to say that having single parent inheritance is always bad but the choice is not left to the programmer making it a stricter language. The same thing can also be said for operator overloading. Again, the programmer does not have the choice of overloading an operator.

Now, lets not get into an argument here. I just wanted to know Java's limitations, not the performance of a programming language(Java vs. C or C++).
