Uses Of Java

     Java technology is a high level programming and a platform independent language. Java is designed to work in the distributed environment on the internet. Java has GUI features that provide you better looks and feel over the C++ language. Moreover, it is easier to use than C++ and works on the concept of object oriented programming model. Java has various functions with the most common like enabling to play video games, watching or streaming videos and audios as well, chat with people around the world, banking applications and so much more.

It is a well known technology which allows you for software design and written only once for a virtual machine to run on different computers supporting various operating systems. Java is also used to create standalone applications which may run on a single computer or in distributed networks. Other than these common functions of Java, it can also perform the following functions if put under full implementation.

First of all, Java has an Application Programming Interface. This provides the core functionality of the Java programming language. It gives a wide collection of useful classes, which is further used in your own applications. It provides basic objects and interfaces to networking and security to XML generation and database access.

Likewise, it Contains JDK tools which provide compiling, running, monitoring, debugging and documentation of your applications.

Similarly with integrated libraries, such as the Java IDL API, JDBC API, Java Naming and Directory interface among others enable database to access and change remote objects.

The Java programming language will as well encourage good coding practices and manage automatic garbage collection which helps you avoid memory leaks. Based on the concept of Object Orientation, its Java Beans component architecture and wide range easily extensible, flexibility and API can reuse existing tested codes to introduce fewer bugs.

Using Java Web Start software, users will be able to launch own applications with a single click of the mouse. An automatic version check initially enables users to be always up to date with the latest version of your software. With the help of Java these applications will undergo automatic updates whenever a new version of the application is released.

Java is also very ideal for programming in the networked, heterogeneous world, realizing web and ecommerce applications, integrating technologies such as DBs and other languages, programming of handheld devices such as phones, PDAs among others. The growing trends of mobile phones such as Nokia Asha, Android phones, black berry and so forth in the field of telecommunications have led to heavy reliance on java. Opera mini, Skype, Gtalk, Google maps etc are some of the most popular applications developed using the Java platform.
