Java

Object-oriented, platform-independent programming language and registered trademark of the Sun Microsystems, which was purchased by Oracle in early 2010. Java programs are initially translated into a bytecode and then executed in the Java run-time environment, the main element of which is the Java Virtual Machine (Java-VM). The bytecode is interpreted in this process and Just-in-Time (JIT) compiled, where necessary. Java programs are platform-independent and operate as a rule on all computers and operating systems, which have an existing Java-VM.
