Java was created in the early 1990s by James Gosling. They first started as the Green team, which developed set-top boxes, interactive television, etc. Around this time, the Internet became more accessible to the public, and the team had to create a programming language for digital devices such as television. They've considered using C++; however, its drawbacks led them to create an alternate language. But it soon proves to be best suited for internet programming. Later, Java technology was incorporated by Netspace.
Java is a multi-platform, object-oriented, network-centric programming language used widely in many applications and as a computing platform. It is among the most used programming languages. Java is used for game development, cloud computing, scientific applications, enterprise applications, web-based applications, embedded systems, software tools, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, and the Internet of Things.
Since the language is so popular, Java has high-quality learning resources that produce many professional Java developers from all levels who form a solid and active community. The programming language itself has lots of inbuilt functions and libraries. It offers high-quality development tools which can make the developing team more productive, meaning your project can be completed faster. However, the most liked benefit for businesses and developers is that it is platform-independent and highly secure.
