For some time now, and probably for the foreseeable future as well, Java has been the top choice in both the enterprise and mobile sectors.
Today, Java is one of the world’s most widely used programming languages across almost all platforms, technologies, and industry sectors. Java is one of the most flexible programming languages in the world. It is currently the most widely used backend programming language in the development of mobile applications (primarily for Android), as well as is very common in cloud-based services and several other hot and trending tech niches like IoT and Big Data.
The need for Java developers continues to be quite strong year after year. Java Developer is one of the most popular IT jobs in the United States, according to a new analysis from the analytical firm Burning Glass.
One of the most in-demand technical talents overall is Java. It’s interesting to note that a study of all professionals, not just those in the IT industry, revealed that Java developers were the least likely to leave their line of work. Their rate of career move is less than 8%, compared to 27% for database administrators and 35% for software developers as a whole. Most Java programmers simply don’t want to give it up, even when they are allowed to move up to a higher managerial position.
- Knowing and understanding Java is simple. Simple to build and maintain, its syntax is easy to understand. The code may be easily debugged as well. Aside from this, Java does not have the sophisticated features of C and C++ like explicit pointers, operator overloading, and storage classes.
- Cross-platform Java programming is easy to create and maintain. As long as Java Virtual Machine (JVM) support is there, code is only ever written once and then customized to particular machines as necessary, regardless of the operating system. As a result, it is also cross-platform compatible.
