Java is a statically-typed, high-level programming language that revolutionized the way languages were developed post-release. It’s provided complete support for cross-platform execution through its JVM system. Due to this, it’s widely adopted and has been going strong in the industry for 20+ years.
For the fact that it can run on almost every computer without changing behavior, as well as that its huge selection of libraries and tools, makes it the first choice of languages for many developers. It has also long been a mainstay of educational institutions due to the concepts it teaches and its interoperability between systems.
WHY LEARN JAVA?
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 dev communities meaning there’s more support programmers receive.
COMMON USES OF JAVA
Web & Software Development

FEATURES OF JAVA
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.
The nice thing about Java is that it’s been around since 1996 and since its conception sees few major changes to the language.
EASY TO DEBUG
Java was designed to be easy to use and is, therefore, easy to write, compile and debug.
