Java is an Object Oriented Programming language. It is created by Sun Microsystems. Initially Java was known as Oak, but in 1995 it was renamed as Java. Now a days it has been merged into Oracle Corporations. The main advantage of Java is that we need to run its code once and after that we can run it anywhere, in other words also the tag line of Java. Its code can be run on any platform providing the environment to run it. The Java Virtual Machine has the responsibility of running Java code anywhere. Java is considered as a universal computer language. It is designed similar to C++, but with easier syntax to understand. Java is also known for its security terms. It is a very secure language. Java is used for creating and running web servers, word processors, code editors and so on. Java also provides applets that run inside our browser. They are not incorporated in our browsers like other programs. Now a days applets are rarely used by programmers because of some security flaws in them.
