    Hmm... what kind of response do you expect? Especially on a Qt forum I can only say that Java is a programming language and Qt is a programming framework that isn't tied to a programming language. So you question is like comparing a hammer to an umbrella.

    I'd say it depends on the platforms you wish to be compliant with.

    So as my Swedish collegue Henrik would say --- "it depends on". Exactly like with hammer and umbrella, by the way.

    I don't have any experience in java programming so ...
    But in a forum, I said Qt is good because it is cross platform, it has Nokia support and ... , but somebody said no! Java is the best programming language for cross platform development. So What are your opinions about it ? Is Qt good and why and why not ?Should i transfer to some framework else? I like Qt and i had good time with it , but today i am in a doubt. Please help me.

    Everything the underlying language (like C++) supports, Qt supports as well. It just might not be any real benefit from using it. Again, stop treating Qt as a separate language. It's just a set of libraries. And you can do web development with Qt just fine.

    web programming and web site design are sometimes have the mix meaning and both are used to refer each one, but these are two are completely different things.
    Web site designs can be done by a non-programmer, just a UI designer. Where as web programming is a vast area consisting of database access, servers, clients,
    generators etc.

    As of now, if you are making a server app of something of that sort then you can very well use Qt.

    between java and Qt I would go for Qt. But I'm suspicous because I'm on a Qt forum and don't know nothing about java . Check this link. If you have some especific task that can be done in java or Qt, and if you have deadlines, bear in mind the learning curve, since you said you don't know java. Also for web site development in client side, with database acess, perhaps php with sql would do the trick.

    Sorry but i think it should be server side , I have used them but it was interesting for me that i can do web programming with C++.

    It really depends what you mean by "web programming" really. Is building a web-service "web programming"? C++ can definitely do that. Is implementing a web-browser plugin "web programming"? C++ can do that too. Is building a web-server content handler "web programming"? C++ can certainly do that.
