What is Java?

Java is a development language widely used across different domains, from enterprise applications to Android mobile apps. Thanks to its platform independence and strong object-oriented programming principles, Java remains a leading choice for businesses seeking reliable software solutions

It comes with a unique feature from the get-go: “Write once, run anywhere“. It’s how Java revolutionized the software development world forever. But what does that mean? It means that once you write your code in Java, it runs on any device without any changes required.

Key benefits of using Java

There are several reasons why Java is a great option for your projects, including the following.

Platform independence

Is enabled by the use of Java Virtual Machine (JVM). This feature is an enormous time and effort saver developers enjoy when writing software across different platforms (Windows, Linux, or Mac).

Object Oriented Programming (OOP) design principles

Java bases its structure and syntax around the concept of “objects.” Objects bundle together data and operations on that data. This approach allows for more intuitive design, cleaner code, and easier debugging.

Heightened robustness

Using Integral Exception Handling Mechanisms and Type Checking Options throughout your coding process create fewer errors, making debugging fool-proof.

Comprehensive security model

Java employs a robust security model that prevents any unauthorized code from performing potentially harmful operations within the program’s framework, so every line of your code adheres to all of Java’s safety mandates.

Understanding the difference between

Java and JavaScript

There’s a lingering confusion when comparing Java with its web development cousin – JavaScript. Don’t be fooled by their similar names, their purposes in real-life usage scenarios are two complete opposites.

 

    • JavaScript functions as a client-side scripting language that provides interactivity to web pages.
    • Java serves as a general-purpose development language used widely for developing high-level enterprise applications that run across various platforms. Smartphone apps (Android ones especially), desktop applications, and even embedded system development are among the solutions you can create with it.

3 common Java myths

Java and JavaScript are the same

Java and JavaScript have fundamentally different underlying structures and systems of use altogether. Java excels in building large-scale enterprise applications by using statically-typed compiled language means. On the other hand, JavaScript leverages interpreted dynamically-typed methods that specialize in improving web interactivity or enhancing web-based interactions.

Java is so slow

Another rather popular misconception is that Java is slow when compared to natively compiled languages like C or C++. It was a drawback during its early years but consult any expert – these issues do not exist anymore and are vastly mitigated with advancements in JVM (Java Virtual Machine) and JIT (Just-In-Time) compiler technologies. These modern-day codebases written in Java offer comparable performance with those written in natively compiled languages

Java is only for web and enterprise applications

While Java is indeed prevalent in these areas due to its scalability, robustness, and security, it’s not limited to them. Java is versatile and used in various domains, including Android mobile app development, embedded systems, and even its foothold in the fields of Big Data, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning

Comparing Java with other languages

Here’s what sets Java development from the rest of the popular development languages:
  • Java VS Python
    Python is highly regarded for its intuitiveness and readability, making it a great option for beginners. It also dominates the fields of data analysis, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. But when it comes down to building sturdy enterprise applications at a large scale level, Java takes the top spot. With its statically-typed structure, Java is more reliable and less likely to cause runtime errors — an essential factor when working with huge systems. Moreover, thanks to the prowess of the JVM when dealing with multithreading environments, Java often performs better than Python.

  • Java VS C++
    C++ has massive efficiency capabilities regarding taking control over system resources specifically deployed within performance-critical applications such as real-time systems or game development. However, due to a lack of fundamental features like platform independence or garbage collection, things tend to get quite tricky. Furthermore, unlike C++, Java excels at robust exception-handling mechanisms alongside simpler memory management geared towards easing application development straight outta coding boot camps!

  • Java VS Ruby
    Both development languages are object-oriented languages. But what sets Java apart is that it’s statically typed compared to Ruby (dynamically typed). Using that advantage Java’s code is directly translated into machine code thus being faster to execute than Ruby’s. Another great perk of being statically typed is error identification during compilation. Thanks to Java’s upfront approach at interpreting data types, the code stays bug-free.

 

But it all boils down to what your project objectives entail and which development language suits the particular requirements of the task at hand.

Most popular Java solutions

For decades now, Java has played a fundamental role in multiple domains:

Enterprise applications

Java has cemented itself as a force to be reckoned with when it comes to enterprise solutions. With unbeatable security features combined with robust scalability capabilities, Java takes center stage for complex business systems ranging from financial services apps to e-commerce platforms

Mobile applications

Java also makes its mark when it comes to mobile app development — Android, the largest operating system for mobile phones globally primarily runs on Java, managing millions upon millions of apps located on the Google Play Store.

Web applications

Creating dynamic web applications is yet another field where Java shines brilliantly. Whether creating small business websites or expansive social media platforms, tons of sites are built using Java. The Spring framework — which every Java jack-of-all-trades knows about— simplifies creating highly performing web applications, leveraging its reliable robustness perfectly.

Big Data

Massive processing frameworks for big data such as Apache Hadoop are examples almost entirely written by Java. Besides powerful frameworks, many Java tool libraries drive data visualization efficiency, uplifting the whole big data community.

Cloud-Based applications

Modern times push businesses more towards cloud computing platforms like GCP (Google Cloud Platform) or AWS ( Amazon Web Services). Using Java, your portable solutions remain equally powerful while ensuring optimal scalability in the cloud environment

Internet of Things (IoT)

By its platform-independent nature, Java is an excellent choice when designing IoT devices inclusive of small sensors through to powerful controllers enhancing connectivity and seamless shared data transfer.
