Java's Momentum Is Running Low

In eWeek, one article says things talks about Java: Java's Momentum Is Running Low

Java was invented in early 90s, and in the mid-90s it became a hype because it can "programe once, run everywhere". Different operating systems have trouble communicating, and Java was claimed to be capablesuitable for this task. Java is pure Object Oriented language. Because it doesn't have backward compatible problem as C++, it is more readable, and more maintainable.

But it was not popular. Because although Java applet is funny, it was never a mainstream product in Internet. First of all, it's running slowit runs slow. Second, it's very difficult to make Java applet as beautiful as Flash.

In the late 90s, people realized that the best way to use Java was to run it in the server instead of client side. And its ubiquity makes it easy to transfer data between different platform of servers. So it became big company's tool.

In 2000, C# was invented. It combines the advantage of Java and C++.

--"be capable for" --> be capabe of doing
--"it was not popular, because although Java..."--> try to reorganize it please

The eWeek No. x issue had an article about Java: Java's Momentum Is Running Low.

Java was invented in the early 1990s, and by the mid-1990s, it became a hype because it can "programe once, run everywhere." Java is claimed to be able to communicate among different operating systems. Because Java is a pure OO language and doesn't have backward compatibility problem as C++, it is more readable and more maintainable.

However, Jave has not been popular yet. Although running Java applet is fun, it is not a mainstream product in the Internet. It is slow and is not as beautiful as Flash.

In the late 1990s, people realized that Java is best to be used in the server instead of the client side. Its ubiquity makes it easy to trasfer data among different server plaforms. So it becomes a big tool in companies.

In 2000, C# was invented. It combines the advantages of Java and C++.

There is a lot of missing "a","the", and some sentences are quite redundent.

Keep working on. The more you write, the better you will be. :)
