What is Java ? Hello my friends, today I am going to talk about my favorite programming language.
Java is one of the most used programming languages in the world. It was developed by James Gosling. In it’s beginnings it was designed for televisions.But developers thought it was too advanced. Gosling designed the Java language with a C/C++ based style syntax so it could be easier to understand. Being a “Write Once, Run Anywhere” , this language soon became very popular. And by “Write Once, Run Anywhere” we understand that it means Java can run on machines like Windows, Linux/UNIX , Mac and other operating systems.
But how can you get started with Java?
This is the fun part.There are a lot of newbies around the world that want to learn,study and implement Java. That was all about it’s history, now lets get to the code.
Java is an Objected Oriented Programming language.It operates with classes, objects and methods.But before you work with them, you must learn the language basics first.You need a compiler like Eclipse or NetBeans IDE
For example, you can download NetBeans here
or you can download Eclipse here
After you download the compiler you can start developing your own programs.So, you now have the compiler. Basically, you have all you need to get started.Lets see in the next post how the simplest program “Hello World” can be developed in Java language. (Using Eclipse)
