Being a mobile, simple and secure programming language was the main objective behind the creation of the Java programming language. These are just the initial level of advantages of Java that were present in the language. There are numerous of astonishing features that play a terrific role in the massive popularity of this unique language. Java buzzwords is the name that has been assigned for the advantages of Java.
Here is a list of the most prominent advantages of the Java language that is depicted below.
It is one of the simplest language that you will ever come across in your life. It is extremely easy to learn the Java language because of the fact that its syntax is simple, not messy and can be easily understood. Here are some of the facts that are provided by the Sun that is the developing company of Java in the favor that Java language is a simple programming language:
As a matter of fact, we all are aware that Java is an object-oriented programming language and everything that is present in Java is basically an object. Object-oriented generally elaborates to the feasibility to organize the software as a combination of different types of objects that mutually incorporates both the data and behavior. A methodology that generally simplifies the software development and maintenance just by providing some rules is known as the Object-oriented programming (OOPs). Here are some of the basic concept of the OOPs:
Java is generally known as a platform independent language that simply means that it can be run on various platforms. And the reason behind being independent is that it differs from other programming languages like C, C++, etc. that are compiled in to a platform specific machines. But Java follows a procedure of write once, run anywhere. To simply the understanding process please note that the platform is basically the hardware or software environment in which a program runs. The Java platform differs from most of the other platforms in the sense that it is a software-based platform that basically runs on the top of the other hardware-based platforms. This platform generally have two components that are depicted below:
The Java code is very adaptable and can be executed on various platforms like, Windows, Sun Solaris, Linux, Mac/OS, etc. Java code is converted into bytecode after being compiled by the compiler. The bytecode can be executable on multiple platforms and hence, it is called as the platform-independent code.
If you want to secure your code the Java is the language for you. Virus-free systems can be developed by the help of Java. Java is secured because:
Robust is a word that points towards being strong. And the Java is known to be robust because of the facts that are depicted below:
Java is an architecture neutral language because of the fact that there are no implementation dependent features in it.
Java language is portable as we have discussed above it facilitates the programmer the feature of carrying the Java bytecode to any platform without any implementation.
Java language is known to faster than other traditional interpreted programming languages as Java bytecode is generally "close" to the native code. However, this language is a little bit slower than a compiled language and the reason is that Java is an interpreted language.
Java language is basically distributed as it facilitates the programmer to create distributed applications in it. RMI and EJB are the two components that are used for creating distributed applications.
A thread is basically just like a separate program that is executes concurrently. Programmers can write Java programs that deal with multiple tasks at one time just by defining the multiple threads. It doesn't occupy memory for each thread and this is the main advantage of the multi-threading and this is known to share a common memory area.
As a matter of fact we known that Java is a dynamic language and is famous for supporting dynamic loading of the classes. In simple words, classes can be loaded on demand and that supports the functions that are from its native languages that are C and C++. Dynamic compilation and automatic memory management that is also known as the garbage collection are generally supported by the Java language.
