Computer programming is a creative process that instructs a computer on how to do a task. These instructions are known as code, and computer programmers write code to solve problems or perform a task. The end goal is to create something that could mean anything from a web page, or a piece of software, or a picture. Programming involves tasks such as analysis, generating algorithms, accuracy and resource consumption, and the implementation of algorithms in a chosen programming language (commonly referred to as coding). The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate the performance of a task on a computer, often for solving a given problem. Tasks related to programming include testing, debugging, source code maintenance, implementation of build systems, and management of derived artefacts.
Java is a computer programming language. It enables programmers to write computer instructions using English-based commands instead of writing in numeric codes. It’s known as a high-level language because it can be read and written easily by humans. Java is a class-based, object-oriented programming language that is designed to have as few implementation reliance as possible.
It is a general-purpose programming language intended to let application developers write once, meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation.
Like English, Java has a set of rules that determine how the instructions are written. These rules are known as its syntax. Once a program has been written, the high-level instructions are translated into numeric codes that computers can understand and execute.
