Dear Experts,

My company is thinking of hiring someone for a Java programmer position who has no professional Java experience, but does have some C++.  How close are they?

Thanks,

From the point of view of syntax, too much the same
However you can not disregard the plenty of differences between them
Both have several beneficial advantages over each other and demand their own experienced programmers

Thanks, folks.  No "right" answer here, so I'll split.
