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

+ 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

Please no Java !
You name the arguments against it
- slow startup
- memory requirements
- not all computers have it installed

I have a machine running from a CF card where I can run xnmapfe from;
