Analyze this: 101 Reasons Why Java is Better than .NET

Recently a friend sent me a mail (just another chain mail) with the title 101 Reasons why Java is Better than .NET. The title was so catchy, that I got to read it at the very instance. I read for the next 10 minutes and read each and every word twice. I was left pondering on the apartheid and ignorant attitude of the author, who compiled such a list. Either he must have been a JAVA fanatic or must be a student in a hurry to submit his reports. With this thought I smiled on the authors ignorance and went on to continue with my work.

Cyclomatic Complexity

While reading about unit testing, I was wondering if there was a way to find out the number of test cases that would be needed to test the class completely. A large class can have large number of independent execution paths, which would be adopted. There are execution points which are independent of each other. This may lead to a situation where an execution path is covered while testing, but has not been specifically tested. So a 100% code coverage does not necessarily reflect 100% testing of the code.
