    Do you have any java programming questions? Your question appears to be about someone's opinion.
    You've asked your question in the wrong part of the forum. This section is for java programming problems.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    johnny916, you've asked a subjective question, the answers of which will be based mainly on opinion. If you have not yet, I suggest you research each language, what the capabilities and limitations are and what your goals are, before making any decision. Objective-C is limited to one platform - mac. Java has a write-once run anywhere concept (unless of course, you want to run it on a Mac mobile device). I am of the mindset that regardless of the language one learns, there are also language independent concepts (objects, algorithms, data structures, design patterns, etc...) that any 'high demand' programmer should know.
