Type: Programming language
Briefly explained: Java is an object-oriented programming language used in versatile applications. Java is widely used in web development, mobile development, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) application development. A key feature of Java is that it is cross-platform. This means that Java applications can run on almost any device as long as a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is installed to convert the Java application into machine language.
