Depends on what you plan to do as they both have different applications. Are you taking it for the learning experience or to solve a problem?

I took two semesters of C++ in college and it was easy. However, I now know I dislike programming with a passion.

I love programming, but didn't care much for C++

Java is super easy, as is C and also C#.

What is your overall goal and application of either of these languages? That needs to be addressed first me thinks.

Just for college credit. Not majoring in programming, just required for the college.

Java is far easier to learn for Beginners. In Java memory management is completely handled by the Java Virtual Machine. Basically Java makes it difficult to shoot yourself in the foot, while C/C++ provides you with ample opportunities. Learning either language will teach you about Object Oriented programming and being able to program in Java or C++ are very in demand skills. Java is much higher level than C++, Java code is compiled into an intermediate format which is interpreted by the Java Virtual Machine. Whereas C++ is compiled directly into machine code. As a result in general Java programs execute much slower than C++ programs, but are much more portable.

Never heard anyone say C was easy ... Kind of funny too since C++ is C with some extensions.

I had to simulate an OS in C in my senior year. Was like 2 or 3k lines. I wanted to kill myself.

EDIT: I'm not much for more complex procedural programming. Understandably it's fast but so incredibly time consuming when you are forced to use like 1 or 2 headers and have to write the rest by hand. Excruciating to do that.

It looks like more people are leaning towards java being easier.

^x2!

I shot myself in the foot a few times because I would use the wrong memory address for an operation and crash my program. Pointers in C++ can be really helpful, but also make your life hell.
