JAVA application development caters the widest need of all businesses and is capable of developing programs and codes for even the most unique or complex scenarios. Therefore, it is accepted as a supreme language for expanding or developing applications. It is an ideal technology that fits in all critical criteria of creating mobile, desktop and enterprise applications.
JAVA is a comprehensive tool that includes detailed concepts and capabilities of several different languages like C, C++ and can outscore almost all other languages. Nevertheless the language has a set of advantages and disadvantages to feature and we shall discuss the same at this juncture.
Let us first throw limelight on the major advantages of JAVA application development-
- Learning JAVA is Easy
Though the statement is subject to raise many contradictions, but this remains a fact. Even if one has no programming background and has never learnt introductory programming languages like C++, learning the concepts of JAVA wouldn’t be a barrier. Without the necessity to use and understand magic characters like Generics Angle Brackets etc., JAVA promotes English syntax and commands instead. Once the initial lessons are caught hold, the rest often becomes easier.
- Uses OOPS Concept
Applications that are developed using the OOPS (Object Oriented Programming) concept of JAVA are more competent as they are extensible, scalable and flexible. It has a rich library of default design patterns and other best practices. Open sources like Spring etc. use the concepts of Object Oriented Programing making it all the more adaptable for application developments on Java.
- Platform Independent
Since the time JAVA has gained popularity, i.e. from 1990s, its Platform Independent nature has made it a highly demanded technology. This feature has made it complement the tagline “Write Once Run Anywhere” in true sense as it has opened doors to many new developments. Till today, this continues to be the reason why many Java applications are built on Windows and run on UNIX.
- JAVA community and Support
JAVA’s community support has been bliss to all programmers. Bundles of forums to post queries, Stackoverflows and other user groups has always extended support and help on all topics. Giving and taking advice on Java application developments from experts for free has aided in networking one of this biggest and richest community.
Now let us drive some attention to the drawbacks associated with JAVA software development-
- Memory and Speed
Since JAVA requires high storage capacity and uses more memory, it becomes slower in performance compared to other languages.
- Security Concerns
Being platform independent, JAVA developments are at a risk of facing security breaches.
