May involved in Ipad app development, JAVA, I mean along with obj-C...? If yes, How much % of the App will be in JAVA the max, eg. 40% Java...?

Obj-C is easy to Learn if, you know what language...........(tell me from the easiest way: known lang eg C++(make it most easy), C, Java).....?

Do you want to integrate JAVA piece of code in iPhone/iPad application? AFAIK Objective C (primary programming language for iPhone development), C/C++ can be used for iPhone development as of now.

You should learn Objective C first. Start it from HERE.

Best luck n Happy coding..

Thanks

Java is not supported on iOS, so the percentage will be precisely 0%. :-)

Java is not supported on iOS. You can only use objective c, c/c++, HTML and javascript in your apps

ObjC is a hybrid of C and Smalltalk--both of which are languages every developer should learn anyway.

What, why should developers know C and Smalltalk? Because of the way they make you think.

Well, I'm not a really big fan of c. Have to deal with it now, since I'm using c libraries in my iPhone apps. Never dealt with small talk before

I'm not saying anyone should be a "fan" of it (although I don't know why someone wouldn't be)--I'm saying that there are a small subset of programming languages I believe all developers should be familiar with because of the way they make you think: knowing these languages, IMNSHO, make developers *better* developers.
