Why Companies Choose Java for Product Development Outsourcing?
It’s been 25 years since Java programming language has been introduced to the world of coding. So many new languages and their variations have been created in these 25 years, yet Java remains one of the most popular languages in the world. Why?
Being “in its twenties”, Java is a language on which so many giant businesses are built. Banks, retailers, insurance companies, utilities, and manufacturers all use Java. Almost all Fortune 500 companies will confirm using it, too. By now it is already running on over 5 billion devices and has become the “native language” for most programmers.
Java has been consistently developed and bettered in its programming efficiency over these couple decades and is designed to keep running on any stage and OS stably, regardless of the OS in which it was initially developed. Java owes its popularity to its unrivaled platform independence. Most types of computers are compatible with a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) including PCs running on Windows, Macintosh computers, Unix or Linux computers, and large mainframe computers, as well as mobile phones, both on android and iOS. All a programmer needs to do is install the JRE onto the machine.
Java’s flexibility and independence are exactly what makes it ideal for programmers to grow their careers. Also, there are a lot of resources where you can learn Java for free, so now there is no problem to find Java developers in any country.
Java code is easy to understand and troubleshoot while it also allows for “reusable code”. One of the developed features of the language is known as Java objects and allows a programmer to reuse common codes whenever possible, instead of rewriting the same code time and time again. On top of that, Java has a powerful source code editor and comes with an automated, built-in debugger.
If you plan to develop a product in Java you should consider hiring a Java dedicated development team or that will work on your app full-time or product outsourcing to development company.
