Compiled Vs Interpreted
- It is a platform-independent programming language that allows its applications to run on any platform with a JVM feature. Java can also be used to develop programs that run on desktops, embedded systems, and mobiles.
- It supports multithreading which means it can perform several tasks simultaneously.
- It offers a secure environment for the development of applications. It keeps software viruses at bay and prevents misuse of resources.
- It is a dynamic language; all its classes, methods, objects, and libraries are dynamically linked to Java. It also supports several functions that are written in other languages like C and C++.
- It is a client-side scripting language which means the source code is executed on the client’s browser and not otherwise. Hence, a server-side browser isn’t needed to process the code.
- It provides several solid and robust frameworks that aid the development process. The framework is packed with ready-to-use codes that are easily debugged
- It provides concurrency, so users can perform multiple tasks at the same time. You can use a single thread to execute several tasks, thus saving time and effort.
