Depends on your definition of powerful. If you regard an application that is as fast as can, or can handle huge amounts of data in a very small time period to be powerful. Then I’d say no. Java is not powerful. It is in fact limited by the virtual machine it is running on. C++ would then be regarded as powerful. When you regard the fact that you can program an application with a minimum of statements, or that is has such high level functions that you would need little more to finish your app. If that’s what you regard as powerful then yes, Java and even more C# would be the most powerful. It all depends on your point of view.
