Java: What Is It?

Java is an object-oriented programming language, developed by Sun Microsystems in 1995 and since acquired by Oracle.

The Java language is based on C++ but with a simplified approach and more advanced features.

The Java language has also built its notoriety on applets, small animated programs that run in browser software (this type of applet has since been largely replaced by Flash, and then by open standards like HTML5, WebGL, and WebAssembly). Please note: JavaScript, which only works on Internet browsers, should not be confused with Java in general, which can be used anywhere.

It’s platforms
