There are many reasons why Java sustains to such a wide level even after introduction of many programming languages in market. Below are few:

  • With the introduction of Java-8 & lambda expressions, its possible to code much more optimized way.
  • Backwards compatibility of Java makes it a good choice to go with.

So now, let’s start with Java Introduction :

What is Java ?

Java is a general-purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible.

A platform is any hardware or software environment in which a program runs. Since Java has its own runtime environment (JRE) and API, it is called platform.

Example

Below is a simple Java program which you can try as your first program after setting up Java in your system. A detailed description of hello java example is given in next pages.

        System.out.println("Hello World Again...");
