While I don't have any references to back it up - my guess would be that
Java may be seen as more versatile in general programming terms. A
staggering number of enterprise level web applications are built with

Of course, there are many ways to make Android apps without Java - I've

I would say that, in general, the other teacher is incorrect speaking
strictly in terms of web development. PHP has already won that crown
many times over. That said, when I was in University, it was difficult
to find a programming class that taught anything but Java - and that was
10yrs ago now. I chalked it up to the education bubble not being able
