Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Micro systems in 1995. It is the underlying technology that powers state-of-the-art programs including utilities, games, and business applications.
Advantages of Java:
* Java is simple, easy to design , easy to write, and therefore easy to compile, debug, and learn than any other programming languages. * Java is object-oriented, that is used to build modular programs and reusable code in other application. * Java is platform-independent and flexible in nature. The most significant feature of Java is to run a program easily from one computer system to another. * Java works on distributed environment. It is designed to work on distributed computing , Any network programs in Java is same as sending and receiving data to and from a file. * Java is secure. The Java language, compiler, interpreter and runtime environment are securable . * Java is robust. Robust means reliability. Java emphasis on checking for possible errors, as Java compilers are able to detect many error problem in program during the execution of respective program code. * Java supports multithreaded. Multithreaded is the path of execution for a program to perform several tasks simultaneously within a program. The java come with the concept of Multithreaded Program. In other languages, operating system-specific procedures have to be called in order to work on multithreading.
