What properities does the languages need?
- Crosspaltform. Have to work well both on windows and linux
- Mature XML and SQL libraries
- more?



JAVA
+ Most computers already have java installed
+ Mature XML and SQL libararies
+ Fast development
- Large memory footprint
- Long startup time
- nmap is written in C

C++ and QT4 (all version will be released under the GPL)
+ Fast, small memory footprint
+ Mature XML and SQL libararies
+ Nmap is written in C
- Using C++ can lead to more bugs


Comments?
What toolkit/language does the community prefer?
