An article by The Register about Java hosting saying “Web hosting is one of the weakest of all the building blocks in Java” is a bit of a miss, as is the claim that “Java is the only programming language that does not have a built-in support for XML”.
But we all know how well it works.
The same goes for a number of other popular languages, including PHP and Ruby.
So it’s not just the lack of built-ins that make Java so attractive.
It’s that the language has built-up a huge ecosystem that lets you build a web app that looks like anything else you could hope to build.
And with that ecosystem comes a whole lot of open source software.
In other words, it’s an attractive language to develop in.
We’ve written about Java’s open-source community before.
If you want to know more about it, the Java Open Source Project has a great site that describes the project in detail.
That site also has lots of resources on learning and using Java.
We’d recommend checking out the Java web host documentation for a more in-depth overview of the language, including a number that’s more technical.
There’s also a great article by Chris Harris, who works for Open Source for Web, which explains the Java ecosystem in detail and covers a range of open- source software, including Eclipse, Sublime Text and Emacs.
If there’s a specific project you want more information on, we’d recommend reading Chris’ excellent book on the subject, Java in Practice.
We have also written a Java article about a number open-sourced projects, including the Java Platform Module (JPM), the JCP, and the JSF.
So if you’re interested in learning more about the open-platform ecosystem, we’ve got that covered as well.
There are lots of other reasons to consider using Java, but we’ve covered them in the past.
There aren’t many reasons to use another programming language, and if you do, we can’t recommend it enough.
What are some other reasons you might want to try Java?
If you’re using it as a web-hosting solution, it might be a good choice.
It allows you to run a web application without worrying about hosting, a process that might be slow for you or others.
You can run a full-blown web server that’s designed to be run from a local web server or from a shared hosting account.
And you can use Java as a tool for developing web apps.
Java’s built-intuition, flexibility and open-essentials make it attractive for a wide range of use cases.
Java is widely used by the Java community.
And it’s easy to learn and to get started.
If your job involves working with Java, you’ll probably find it to be easier to get used to the language than to learn other programming languages.
There isn’t much documentation out there, but there are plenty of tutorials available.
The Java community has a strong sense of community, so you’ll find it easier to keep up with developments in the language and its ecosystem if you get involved.
Java also offers a wide array of tools, including tools for building web apps, which are commonly referred to as JAX-RS or JavaFX.
You might also find some useful tutorials for Java programming in general.
For example, we have an article on the Java Tutorials website explaining how to write a Java web app.
But if you’d prefer a more technical introduction, we also have an excellent article on how to build a Java app, including links to tutorials, code samples and more.
If the choice of programming language is a matter of choice, then Java is definitely a great choice.
We hope this article has helped you to think about whether Java is right for you.
If it doesn’t, you can always check out our Java developer guide.
If that doesn’t help, there are lots more good reasons to choose Java over other programming language choices.
We’re keen to hear from you.
We welcome your feedback on the article.
We’ll be posting a follow-up article every week about why we think Java is the best choice for you, as well as other topics.
If we get enough of your comments, we’ll be sure to include them in our next Java article.
Thanks, and we’ll see you soon.
