The article covers the major pros and cons of two similar at first glance, but essentially different programming languages.
Java is a programming language designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. Java applications are compiled into bytecode that can run on implementations of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which acts as a bridge between source code and the 1s and 0s that the computer can understand. In short, Java can be run on any machine that has the JVM installed. This programming language mostly appears as a server-side language and the go-to programming language for mobile apps on the Android platform. Java is also relatively prominent on the front-end as a Java applet. However, this has become less popular because of security concerns.
