TIOBE Index for November 2017

November Headline: What happened to the scripting languages?

Only Python is going strong. The other scripting languages are gradually moving out of the top 20. What happened? Most errors in scripting languages occur run-time. They show up when a program is run. Despite the fact that one can write all kind of unit tests to compensate for this, it remains quite dangerous because such errors might happen while running the application in production. Since quality demands are getting higher and higher, hardly anybody dares to write a critical and large software system in a scripting language nowadays. Even a scripting language such as JavaScript that is inevitable while doing web programming was forced to evolve to a safer language. Microsoft introduced a typed version of JavaScript called TypeScript and all kinds of frameworks such as Angular and React were developed to safeguard the language
On the other hand, the statically typed languages responded to the threat of scripting languages by reducing their type verbosity: it all started with the "var" keyword in C#, followed by type inference in Java and auto specifiers in C++. And this is how the big languages always seem to survive: by cherry picking the nice and promising features of their competitors.

The index can be used to check whether your programming skills are still up to date or to make a strategic decision about what programming language should be adopted when starting to build a new software system.
TIOBE Programming Community index

TIOBE Programming Community index Of October 2017

The TIOBE Programming Community index is an indicator of the Popularity of Programming Languages. The Index is Updated once a month. The Ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers world-wide, Courses and third party vendors. Popular Search Engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube and Baidu are used to Calculate the Ratings. It is important to Note that the TIOBE index is not about the best Programming Language or the Language in which most Lines of code have been Written.

Key Features of the Java LanguageJava is simpler than most other languages that are used to create server applications because of its consistent enforcement of the object model.Introduction To JavaThe 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 youChaining Constructor using SuperIf a subclass constructor invokes a constructor of its superclass either explicitly or implicitly there will be a whole chain of constructors called all the way back to the constructor of Object.Multilevel Inheritance in JavaMultilevel Inheritance is said to have taken place when a child class inherits from a parent class and then child class becomes the parent class for another class.Interface Inheritance JavaAn Interface declaration consists of modifiers the keyword interface the interface name a comma separated list of parent interfaces and the interface body.Inheritance in JavaA class that is derived from another class is called a subclass. The class from which the subclass is derived is called a superclass. This process of inheriting properties from another class is called Inheritance.White Spaces in JavaWhite Space is a character in Java. A character satisfies to be a White Space if and only if it is a Unicode space character.Serialization and Deserialization JavaTo serialize an object means to convert its state to a byte stream so that the byte stream can be reverted back into a copy of the object.Implementations in Collection FrameworkImplementations are the data objects used to store collections, which implement the interfaces described in the Interfaces section.
