Why learn Java Programming Language?
- Java is Easy to learn
Many would be surprised to see this one of the top reasons for learning Java or considering it as the best programming language, but it is. If you have a steep learning curve, it would be difficult to get productive in a short span of time, which is the case with most of the professional project.
Java has fluent English like syntax with minimum magic characters e.g., Generics angle brackets, which makes it easy to read Java program and learn quickly.
Once a programmer is familiar with initial hurdles with installing JDK and setting up PATH and understand How Class path works, it’s pretty easy to write a program in Java.
- Java is an Object-Oriented Programming Language
Another reason, which made Java popular is that it’s an Object Oriented Programming language. Developing an OOP application is much easier, and it also helps to keep system modular, flexible, and extensible.
Once you have knowledge of crucial OOP concepts like Abstraction, Encapsulation, Polymorphism, and Inheritance, you can use all those with Java. Java itself embodies many best practices and design patterns in its library.
Java is one of the few close to 100% OOP programming languages. Java also promotes the use of SOLID and Object-oriented design principles in the form of open source projects like Spring, which make sure your object dependency is managed well by using the Dependency Injection principle
- Great collection of Open Source libraries
Open-source libraries ensure that Java should be used everywhere. Apache, Google, and other organization have contributed a lot of great libraries, which makes Java development easy, faster, and cost-effective.
There are frameworks like Spring, Struts, Maven, which ensures that Java development follows best practices of software craftsmanship, promotes the use of design patterns, and assisted Java developers in getting there job done.
