What is Java?

Java is a concurrent, compiled, object-oriented programming language. It was created in 1995 by Sun Microsystems (now Oracle) and can be found across many websites, applications, and programs. It was modelled after C++, but intended to be simpler and easier to use.

Java must be run on a software platform, such as the Java Platform by Oracle or the Android SDK for mobile devices. Java is commonly used in Android apps, enterprise software, financial and scientific software, big data calculations, and web applications.

Who learns Java?

Mobile app developers, web developers, and software engineers might need to know Java to create and maintain their products. Java is less intuitive and more complex than other web development languages like Python, so it’s better to start elsewhere if you’re new to programming.

How do you learn Java?

As with many programming languages, you can teach yourself how to code, take classes, watch tutorials, or learn from a professional. Taking an online JavaScript course from trained experts is the best way to ensure there are no gaps in your learning.

Is there an official Java certification?

Yes, IT professionals can earn official Java certification from Oracle. Learn more about Java certification prep courses with Skillsoft
