    Default Why Java?

    I I see and use many softwares and operating systems in my computer and all around. those are developed in C or C++ and some of them are in
    VB.net etc. I codunt find any importance of Java. but we are having the talk that Java have demand and more Job opportunists why?

    even jasp is also replaced by PHP. because php is faster thean that.

    I'm not saying Java is bad. I what to know where it is correctly used and why?

    We get these questions every once in a while, and there is not a good, polite way to answer it.

    Java is used in many desktop applications, from simple GUIs to huge visual systems. From my personal experience, my job uses Java to create almost all of the frontends for many applications in the air traffic field. We only use C and C++ to support (a lot of) legacy stuff, and we don't use VB or C# for anything that I know of.

    Java is also used to create many mobile applications. Chances are, if you have a cell phone, you use Java every day. With the rise of Android, that use is only going to increase.

    I'm just getting into the JSP world (which is what I assume you meant by jasp), but I'm told that many sites (including LinkedIn) use it. A web-developer friend of mine told me that php does not scale as well as JSP does, and that pretty much every major website uses JSP.

    If you want more information, I suggest a google search. Different places are going to use different tools for different jobs. Many places use Java. Many places don't. You saying that you couldn't find any importance of Java is like me saying that I couldn't find any importance of C#, or VB, or anything else I don't usually come into contact with. It's all anecdotal, which makes it frustrating to try to have a conversation about.

    Thank you very much!
    your correct developing in java is better thane using VB.net since both performance is almost same but java is platform independent.

    how many of the projects in your experience that take advantage of the platform independent feature of Java.

    Again, this isn't a question that can really be answered. What are you looking for? A number? A percentage? There is no way to answer this with any accuracy. Why do you think you need to know this?

    you see I'm just a student and I have no idea of applications of java. and even my teachers didn't have any experience of programming they teach us just reading books. the only source to me is INTERNET forums. I searched in google but no use.

    please don't miss understand me.

    No, I'm saying that it's not really an answerable question. If I told you the answer was 50,000, what would you do with that information? Like I said, for more information, I would recommend a google search. Feel free to report back here with what you find.
