i have no problem in using Java from an utilitarian point of view. i have a problem with javaism.

you cannot build a native app on android with ease because you will be obstructed. the proces is hard and you are intentionaly discouraged.

even if C was the most elegant and succinct language of all it would have been hard to do things with the NDK.

everything that works on android is thanks to native .so libraries in C on top of linux kernel and you get the java android framework as a wraper and comunication layer to their C library endpoints.

for you to do something as a Java programmer on their compatible JVM on the Android system it first has to be done as a C library. it doesn't work the other way around.

think of the extra work on their side to make native so obfuscated that the artificial way of doing it is easier.

they have done it as hard as posible to use any other language than Java on android.
