    CodeStringers is a leading Java software development company.

    We have developed dozens of customer products using Java. CodeStringers can help you build scalable, high-performance software applications using Java as well as other software development technologies.

    </What is Java?>

    Java is an object-oriented programming language and software platform that runs on billions of devices, including notebook computers, mobile devices, gaming consoles, medical devices and many others. The rules and syntax of Java are based on the C and C++ languages.

    One major advantage of developing software with Java is its portability. Once a Java development company writes code for a Java program on a notebook computer, it is very easy to move the code to a mobile device. When the language James Gosling of Sun Microsystems (later acquired by Oracle) invented the system in 1991, the primary goal was to be able to “write once, run anywhere.”

    It’s also important to understand that Java is much different from JavaScript. Javascript does not need to be compiled, while Java code does need to be compiled. Also, Javascript only runs on web browsers while Java can be run anywhere. For more on the difference between these two technologies, we invite you to take a look at a blog post we did on the topic.

    When is Java a good choice for a software application?

    Java is a versatile language used by Java development companies to build variety of software applications. Its “Write Once, Run Anywhere” philosophy means that Java applications can be developed on one platform and run on virtually any other platform, as long as there’s a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) available. Here are scenarios where Java shines:

    Ideal Applications

    Enterprise Applications

    Java EE (Java Platform, Enterprise Edition) provides a robust, scalable platform for developing large-scale enterprise applications. Many big corporations rely on Java for their backend systems, CRM, ERP, and other enterprise software.

    Web Applications

    With frameworks like Spring, Hibernate, and JavaServer Faces (JSF), Java is a strong contender for building dynamic web applications. Servlets and JSPs in Java allow for creating web-based applications with ease.

    Mobile Applications

    Java powers Android, the world’s most popular mobile operating system. If you’re aiming to develop Android apps, then Java is the language to know.

    Cloud-Based Applications

    Java offers robust support for cloud-based applications, making it a good choice for cloud solutions. Java EE, Spring Cloud, and other frameworks offer tools and libraries specifically for this purpose.

    IoT Applications

    With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), Java’s portability becomes even more valuable. Its ability to run on a multitude of devices makes it a great choice for IoT applications.

    For Systems and Organizations

    Embedded Systems

    Java ME (Java Platform, Micro Edition) offers solutions for embedded systems and resource-constrained devices.

    High-Performance Systems

    Java’s performance has improved considerably over the years. With the Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler and various performance enhancements in the JVM, Java can be used for high-performance applications.

    Distributed Systems

    Java has built-in support for distributed computing. Java RMI (Remote Method Invocation) and technologies like EJB (Enterprise JavaBeans) make it easier to create distributed applications.

    Learning and Academics

    Learning institutions often turn to Java for teaching the fundamentals of programming and object-oriented concepts. They choose it because of its robustness and relatively straightforward syntax.

    Big Data Technologies

    Java plays a significant role in big data technologies. Hadoop, the widely-used big data processing framework, is written in Java.

    However, one should make the choice of using Java (or any language) based on several factors. As always, one should take into account the specific requirements of the project, existing infrastructure, development team expertise, and long-term maintenance considerations.

    Which products are built using Java?

    Java, being versatile and scalable, has been chosen by many companies as the language of choice for building their SaaS products. Here are some SaaS products that are built with Java or have significant components written in Java:


    Known for its marketing, sales, and service software, HubSpot uses Java in various parts of its infrastructure.

    Atlassian Jira

    The popular issue and project tracking application.

    Atlassian Confluence

    A collaboration tool that acts as a wiki and workspace.


    The enterprise content management and collaboration platform use Java for several of its services.

    Atlassian Bitbucket

    A Git repository management solution.


    A leading provider of enterprise cloud applications for finance, HR, and planning has some services that utilize Java.

    New Relic

    An application performance monitoring tool that uses Java in its backend.


    While not entirely written in Java, certain backend components and services, especially those related to the search functionality, use Java.


    While Jenkins can be self-hosted, there are also cloud versions (SaaS) of this popular continuous integration/continuous deployment tool.


    While it might be better classified as a PaaS (Platform as a Service) or simply a service, it’s worth noting that Netflix, one of the largest streaming services globally, heavily utilizes Java in its backend systems, especially in its microservices architecture.
