So… How many languages can you use?

Let’s see: Java + JSP for the server. C++ for the core desktop and phone engine. C++ for the Windows and WinCE version. Objective-C++ for the Mac and iPhone version.

Sounds just about right for a custom client-server system targeting multiple platforms: it’s about using the right tool for the job, and keeping things as simple as they can be–but no simpler.
