 Advantages of Java

  1. Java offers higher cross- functionality and portability as programs written in one platform can run across desktops, mobiles, embedded systems.
  2. Java is free, simple, object-oriented, distributed, supports multithreading and offers multimedia and network support.
  3. Java is a mature language, therefore more stable and predictable. The Java Class Library enables cross-platform development.
  4. Being highly popular at enterprise, embedded and network level, Java has a large active user community and support available.
  5. Unlike C and C++, Java programs are compiled independent of platform in bytecode language which allows the same program to run on any machine that has a JVM installed.
  6. Java has powerful development tools like Eclipse SDK and NetBeans which have debugging capability and offer integrated development environment.
  7. Increasing language diversity, evidenced by compatibility of Java with Scala, Groovy, JRuby, and Clojure.
  8. Relatively seamless forward compatibility from one version to the next

In conclusion, almost 20 years after its inception, Java continues to deliver considerable value to the world of software development.
