What is Java?
Java is a pure object-oriented, high-level programming language that is used for building software for different operating systems. It runs on JVM (Java Virtual machine) , which makes it a platform-independent programming language. Java works on the principle of “Write Once, Run Anywhere (WORA)”. Java was designed by James Gosling in May 1995.
Why to Use Java?
If you are new to programming and you are thinking of choosing Java as your first programming language, we will say it's not a rational decision. This is because Java is a very complicated programming language. If you want to learn Java, we suggest you first learn the C++ programming language and then move to Java.
The more you get into Java, the more it gets complicated. It’s hard to say that you can learn complete Java in 5 to 6 months. Though Java is a very powerful programming language and can land you a high-paid job, it takes time and effort to learn Java.
