    What do you use as the primary programming language when you program a heavy duity server application?

    For me i use C# 2.0, and for clients i use either C# or VB.NET,

    what about you?

    Why use different languages at all? C# is the only one you should be using.

    C || SQL || (C# && SQL) || (Assembly if I get the time to do something for fun) && !(C++) && !(VB if I don't have to)

    C++ and VB are the two I see the most.  Im starting to see more C# and I rarely see any Java anymore.

    Java seems to be loosing people's interest, and for Servers, Java really isn't great anyways.

    C# is gaining popularity, and is my favorite, with C++ being another good language for servers.

    That's my opinion.

    That's surprising. I thought Java had a good following on the server--certainly stronger than on the client, at least. What are the issues that have arisen? Is it just the sheer amount of J* technologies you have to learn to understand what's going on?

    As for myself, I'm using C#, some Ruby, and some basic ColdFusion.
