Hi All,
I wanted to know what all are the basic features of Java.
Actually I have to deliver a presentation on "How Java is different/better than other Programming Laguages"
Do you have any link/docs etc which talks about java features like
OO, Platform Independent, Strong APIs, Thread Support, Garbage Collection etc. I tried google, but could not get what I want.
Thanks in Advance

The preface and "Chapter 1: Introduction" of The Java Language Specification proves some comparisons and information. It is probably not as all encompassing as you want, but it is a little something. There are also tidbits sprinkled throughout the rest of the chapters, but the JLS is not exactly light reading.
Also there is the article Java Advantages & Disadvantages - I'm not overly familiar with the site so you'll need to judge the reliability & credibility of the article and the author.
Lastly, two other sites with some basic points:
Others will probably have some good links for you.
