The Java Technology

Talk about Java technology seems to be everywhere, but what exactly is it?

The following sections explain how Java technology is both a programming language and a platform, and provide an overview of what this technology can do for you


Java Technology

Java technology is both a programming language and a platform.


The Java Programming Language

The Java programming language is a high-level language that can be characterized by all of the following buzzwords:

πŸ‘‰πŸ» SimpleπŸ‘‰πŸ» Architecture Neutral
πŸ‘‰πŸ» Object orientedπŸ‘‰πŸ» Distributed
πŸ‘‰πŸ» MultithreadedπŸ‘‰πŸ» Dynamic
πŸ‘‰πŸ» Architecture neutralπŸ‘‰πŸ» Portable
πŸ‘‰πŸ» High performanceπŸ‘‰πŸ» Robust
πŸ‘‰πŸ» Secure

Each of the preceding buzzwords is explained in The Java Language Environment , a white paper written by James Gosling and Henry McGilton in May 1996.


The Java Platform

A platform is the hardware or software environment in which a program runs.Most platforms can be described as a combination of the operating system and underlying hardware. The Java platform differs from most other platforms in that it's a software-only platform that runs on top of other hardware-based platforms.

The Java platform has two Components:

  • The Java Virtual Machine
  • The Java Application Programming Interface (API)

The Java Virtual Machine is the base for the Java platform and is ported onto various hardware-based platforms.

The Java Application Programming Interface( API ) is a large collection of ready-made software components that provide many useful capabilities. It is grouped into libraries of related classes and interfaces; these libraries are known as packages.


What Can Java Technology Do?

The general-purpose, high-level Java programming language is a powerful software platform. Every full implementation of the Java platform gives you the following features:

  • Development Tools: The development tools provide everything you'll need for compiling, running, monitoring, debugging, and documenting your applications. As a new developer, the main tools required are the javac compiler, the java launcher, and the javadoc documentation tool.

  • Application Programming Interface (API): The API provides the core functionality of the Java programming language. It offers a wide array of useful classes ready for use in applications. It spans everything from basic objects, to networking and security, to XML generation and database access, and more.

  • Deployment Technologies: The JDK software provides standard mechanisms such as the Java Web Start software and Java Plug-In software for deploying applications to end users.

  • User Interface Toolkits: The JavaFX, Swing, and Java 2D toolkits make it possible to create sophisticated Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs).

  • Integration Libraries: Integration libraries such as the Java IDL API, JDBC API, Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) API, Java RMI, and Java Remote Method Invocation over Internet Inter-ORB Protocol Technology (Java RMI-IIOP Technology) enable database access and manipulation of remote objects.
