What is Java?
The object-oriented programming language Java features a virtual machine platform that enables you to compile programs that run on almost every platform. Since its release, it has rapidly gained popularity for building client- and server-side applications. Its syntax is comparable to that of C and C++. Despite this, it is simpler to grasp and has fewer low-level features because the compiler and JVM already take care of such functionality.1
