Java is a concurrent, class-based, object-oriented programming language intended to run with as few implementation dependencies as possible.
Java was designed to follow the development philosophy of write once, run anywhere, meaning that any compiled Java code can run on any platform that supports Java without having to recompile it. Developers use Java because of its robust community of programmers, relative stability, and ubiquity.
