Java has Evolved as a Programming Language

Java has emerged as one of the most popular and majorly used technology internationally in development. It is the most commonly used programming language to develop software applications for customers. Java development is done in the presence of multiple essential elements i.e. known as the environment. This Java run time environment is also known as private run time. The Java Development Kit and Software Development Kit are provided to users by most software software development companies for effective development purposes.

The run time environment comes along with the kits which makes it simpler for users to work in the language without having to spend extra on anything else. By and large, there is confusion between Java development Kit and the Software Development kit to be the similar. Whereas, the basic contrast between the two is that Java Development Kit has narrow work of area, and, Software Development Kit has wider applications. In fact, Java Development Kit is a subset of Software Development Kit if we may say so. The task of writing and running Java programs is the work of JDK. Other elements comprising of the SDK are application servers, extra softwares, debuggers and documentation.

As a programming language Java has some basic goals like:

1. It should be open source and platform independent.
2. It should attain high performance and produce quality work.
3. It should be interpreted, stringed or threaded and should be dynamic also.
4. The program should carry attributes like simplicity, familiarity and object orientation.
5. Program should be secure.

With such dynamic features present, any program written on Java language can run on any other hardware operating system that supports Java applications. Java language code is changed by the compliers into Java byte code instead of specific machine code.

These Java byte code instructions appear analogous to machine code, but are further processed for proper usage by the new hardware as well. Java uses an app called automatic garbage collector to manage memory in the object life-cycle. Because of the simplified elements and various other unique features, Java stands better than any other programming language at the moment. It is many a times accused of being slower than other programming languages and requires more space to store its contents. Yet, the execution speed of java programs has improved remarkably since its origin.

Improvements in terms of memory space required and speed have taken place in this language since its inception. It is due to these advancements that Java Web application has become highly popular among Java developers worldwide.
