Are you amused by the plethora of information available on the internet regarding the word – “Java”! Does it sound like a demon to you or just like a no-nonsense boy next door?
In spite of the fact that the word “Java” is hyped beyond the human power of controlling it, yes Java is certainly important, especially if you are into programming or even planning to pursue a career in programming. In the midst of endless material available on the internet regarding “Java”, let me brief it down to simple and concise points, which will make the whole idea behind Java and its significance very clear to you.
What is Java all about?
Java is an Object Oriented Programming language, developed by Sun Microsystems. To begin with, it was named as ‘Oak’, but it got popular with the version of java. It was developed by the engineers of Sun Microsystems, among whom James Gosling is believed to be the ‘father’ of Java. Java was typically developed for embedded devices such as phones and since then it has been a revolutionary success not only for embedded devices but also as one of the best programming languages for network based programming. In this respect, it is akin to C++, in fact a revised version of C++!
6 Reasons why Java is important for present and future programmers:
1. Platform Independent:
Being platform independent, Java allows programmers to develop applications that can run on any operating system. This characteristic of Java makes it suitable for desktop application. It is a secure, multi-threaded and robust programming language, which is capable of creating dynamic applications. Java is a cross-platform language that can run on any type of system that has a JVM (Java Virtual Machine) in it.
2. Usability of Java:
Java is a ubiquitous language, which means it is present everywhere! If you are a full-fledged software programmer, you will come across Java sooner or later, irrespective of the domain you work in. You can code Java servlets running on Apache and several other web servers. Java also allows you to write database stored procedures with Oracle 8i. You can create remarkable and dynamic web pages that include attractive text, images, or applets (small applications), update these on regular basis and get rid of the dull static pages.
3. Open Source:
Java is an open source programming language which makes it free in many respects. In fact, you will be taken aback to know that all the development tools and the environment (JRE & JDK) that is used to create Java applications are absolutely free of cost.
4. Java for Android:
Irrespective of the fact whether you are tech savvy or not, most of us are badly bitten by the Android bug! Android is in great demand today and fortunately you need Java for Android. J Android has brought Java back into the spot light. Hence the importance of Java has increased even more. In fact, the ever increasing trends of mobile phones in the field of telecommunication also support Java. A working knowledge of Java can enable you to create incredible Android Applications on your own (something even better than eBuddy IM Service, Google Maps Mobile or Opera Mini)!
5. Java is Fun!
Java is fun to learn as it is much more advanced than any other programming languages. It is a proven fact that you will program in Java many times faster than in other languages, making you a far efficient programmer than others who are too loyal to C++. J So, Java means less work and more fun without compromising on your dream job and salary!
6. Be your own boss!
Though there are surplus jobs available in programming, who told you that Java is only for 9 to 5 professionals? Unleash your hidden creativity and be your own boss! What do you think how a company like Microsoft or a similar one came into existence? They were all based on programming at their core levels! So, rub your hands, bring out all your love for programming, get enthused and be the first one to invent or discover something revolutionary with the magic of Java!
