Java is a statically-typed, high-level programming language that revolutionized the way languages were developed post its release. It did this by providing complete support for cross-platform execution through its JVM system. Due to this, it has been widely adopted by most all companies and institutions in the industry going strong for 20+ years.

Java is designed to be a beginner-friendly programming language and since it is a statically typed language, it is much faster than other dynamically typed languages. Another advantage of Java is that it makes it easier to focus on the building of features while it takes care of more menial tasks in the background (such as memory management). It also boasts one of the largest communities which means more support programmers are able to receive.
Build-once, run anywhere! Using JVM, Java is compiled independent of the platform-to-byte code and allows the code to be developed and run anywhere that has a JVM installed.
Used by most all enterprise companies in some form or another, Java is taught in most every CS degree program nationwide.
The nice thing about Java is that it’s been around since 1996 and since its conception sees few major changes to the language.
Java was designed to be easy to use and is therefore easy to write, compile and debug.
