Java is one of the most popular programming languages used to create web applications and platforms, and it’s one in which the development team at Britefish has an unrivaled expertise.  Java currently runs on more than 1 billion computers and 3 billion mobile phones worldwide.  We love it, because it was designed for flexibility, allowing developers to write code that can run on any machine, regardless of architecture or platform.  

This programming language was designed to have the look and feel of the C++ programming language, but it’s easier to use and enforces an object-oriented programming model.  Java can be used to create complete applications that can run on a single computer, or it can be distributed among servers and clients in a network.


Why Should Your Business Applications Use Java?

Java is used to build applications and platforms for a number of devices, including everything from computers, laptops, Blu-ray players, smartphones, gaming consoles, car navigation systems, medical monitoring devices, and so much more. It is a key language for networking, specifically for data centers that store and transfer web-based data. A big reason why we like to work with Java to create websites for our clients is because the language is also used to create miniature, dynamic programs, called applets, that run alongside or are embedded within web pages. These can be used to display interactive widgets and tools like maps, weather, games, and more on a web page, making way for the ability to create more engaging content for your target audience.

Java is based on a C and C++-based syntax and is object-oriented and class-based. Developers, like our team of experts, adopt and use Java because its code can be run securely on nearly any other platform, regardless of the operating system or architecture of the device, as long as the device has a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed. The JRE essentially runs a virtual machine or environment that translates the code into an application or program.

It’s important to note that Java and JavaScript, while similar in the creation of dynamic tools and games for web pages, are in fact different languages. The Java language is more robust and can be used as the sole programming language for an application. Every enterprise uses Java in one way or other. It’s used to create such applications as web applications, desktop GUI applications, embedded systems, eCommerce applications, web servers, mobile applications, enterprise applications, scientific applications, middleware products, and so much more.
