When considered within the brief but dynamic history of technology, Java is old-school. It has been around a long time and has worked to keep pace with the market and the needs of the users, as well as the evolving landscape of technology. Here we discuss four highlights of the Java universe and the benefits and uses of these tools.
“Java has perhaps the most options of any language and its open source access and developer communities provide a rich foundation for support, training and access.“
Here are four Java family members we really like:
This toolkit contains Java Runtime Environment and it is open source. Designed to support developers working with Java programming language, it allows for debugging, and runs apps and applets with support for all operating systems including Windows, Linux, MacOS.
This open source framework is suitable for large scale apps across clusters of devices with parallel processing to process batch and real-time data. It supports Java, Scala, Python and other languages and integrates with Hadoop systems.
These DevOPs and Continuous Integration tools are open source and used for apps written in Java programming language. It runs Java servlets including Apache Tomcat and supports developers in finding, fixing and automating code issues, and has numerous plug-ins and integrated APIs.
Java has a rich history of open source development tools and there are many tools categories including:
