Java is an object-oriented programming language first developed in 1995. It is one of the most popular programming languages and has inspired the development of many others over the years, including C#. Despite all of the languages in existence, developers still prefer Java for projects like Android development, big data, desktop computing, and games. Java is still in use today, with the latest version, Java 17, released in 2021 and Java 18 slated for release in 2022.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Java

Many SMBs rely on Java to aid in developing Android applications, cell phones, gaming consoles, enterprise software, programming hardware, and data analytics. Despite this, an individual must be a skilled developer or coder to understand how to use the programming language and create these desired outcomes. SMBs that utilize Java often outsource these projects or hire an in-house developer.
