What is Java? – Definition
Java is an object-oriented programming language, which is based on classes. Given all the possibilities that this programming language offers, we can say that Java is a general-purpose language. You can develop both desktop applications, using JAVA SE, and web applications, using a framework called Spring.
A great advantage of this programming language is its applicability. The compiled Java code is compatible with all platforms that support Java with no need for recompilation.
