Java enables you to develop,
deploy and use exciting applications.
Java is an object-oriented programming language (OOP) for Web browsers. It is organized around data rather than actions. Java is used for both server and client processing. Java is very similar to the popular C++ programming language. They both are object-oriented programming, using similar syntax and general forms for commands. However, Java is more secure since it doesn't support pointers, which hold the address of other variables. It emerged with more self - contained variables.
The Java platform is a suite of programs that facilitate developing and running programs written in the Java programming language. The platform is not specific to any one processor or operating system, rather an execution engine (called a virtual machine) and a compiler with a set of libraries are implemented for various hardware and operating systems so that Java programs can run identically on all of them. Today, Java is in use by 5 million software developers and operates in 2.5 billion devices including PCs, mobile phones, smart cards, web cams, games, market simulators, and car navigation devices, just to name a few.
