Introduction to Java Programming Language
Java is an Object Oriented Language that was designed to meet the need for a platform independent language. Java is used to develop applications that can run on a single computer as well as on a distributed network. Java is a language that can be used to develop stand-alone and internet-based applications. A Java application works everywhere, from the smallest devices, such as remote controls and microwave ovens to supercomputers. One good thing about Java programs is that they are independent of the type of computer, telephone, television or operating system these devices run on. Java programs work on any type of compatible devices that support Java.
