When you have to choose between a freelancer and a virtual dedicated employee for the Java software applications project you are outsourcing, you will come across debates (on the net) with people rooting for freelancers and also those who swear by the quality dedicated virtual Java programmers can deliver. The advantage of hiring a freelancer is low (initial) costs, and that's about it. Whereas, when it comes to virtual dedicated employees, you have a full-time employee working with just you (unlike freelancers who work with multiple clients and you are just another client!) which guarantees better results. Also, a freelancer working from home won't have access to high-end IT equipment, software, hardware, and communications and IT infrastructure that a virtual dedicated employee has access to in the office provided by your outsourcing vendor. Another factor that works in favor of dedicated remote employees is that they work under the supervision of your outsourcing services vendor, unlike freelancers working from home with a laptop.
So, even though the concept of a virtual dedicated employee is relatively new when compared to freelancer, it has been widely accepted that remote employees can definitely do a better job than freelancers. And about the low (initial) cost, in the long run, virtual dedicated Java programmer's deliver cost-effective and quality results, and the threats of low professionalism, uncertainty, and inefficiency will always be looming over your Java applications development project if you hire a freelancer.
