What Is Java?
Java, developed by Sun Microsystems in 1995, is a general-purpose programming language. This means the language was developed without one single use case in mind. As a result, Java is used for a variety of purposes. Java is object-oriented, like Python, C++, and other languages. This principle means you can store similar data in objects.
Java is everywhere in the technology industry. Some game developers use Java. The Android platform was developed using Java and, by extension, Android apps use at least some Java in their code. Java can process the result of a web form.
The Java language was written with C and C++ in mind, two languages with more verbose syntax. A big aim for the language was to use a syntax that is more “friendly” (easier to understand), which would improve the experience for developers.
