Topic Introduction
Supposing you have a development project coming
up, which programming language you will choose?
Will you choose Java for Backend Development,
Ruby on Rails for MVP or Python? Java holds the
top position according to TIOBE Index 2019 to be
the best programming language in the
world. Without further ado, let's discuss the
top 15 reasons to choose Java for backend
  • The Programming Language for the Enterprise

Initially, it was an elixir in the development
world, but there came a time when programmers
thought it would become replaceable. But the
impeccable features that the language holds made
it stay forever.
2. The Unstoppable Growth
Believe it or not, it has been 24 years since
Java was first created. From the beginning, the
language has evolved and adapted to suit the
latest market trends. Furthermore, with the
addition of ample features to every release
companies are getting more aligned towards using
Java for backend development.
3. Great Performance
The Java compiler is specifically designed for
performance. The code is compiled into byte code
and then compiled by Java compiler. Before
converting into machine level code, the code runs
through Java Virtual Machine.
4. Mobile App Segment Still Holds Java
Whether it is a Windows, Android or iOS
smartphone, Java-based apps are everywhere. We
have now switched to Swift for iOS and Kotlin for
Android apps, but developers having a strong Java
base can quickly master these languages.
5. It's Secure
Safety characteristics are built in Java and the
runtime system. There are runtime checking and
static type checking at the compile time.
Having such features, it becomes challenging to
invade a Java-based application from outside.
6. Ease of Coding
The ease of coding any language makes it simple.
This holds true for Java as well because it has a
less ambiguous syntax terminology. Anyone can
start right off with Java having the fundamental
principles of programming.
7. Object-Oriented Programming Language
Being an Object Oriented Programming Language, it
has various concepts that are relatable. Java
supports principles like Data Abstraction,
Polymorphism, Encapsulation, Overloading, and
Inheritance. According to the backend web
developers, this makes the language as powerful
as C.
8. Inspired by C C
C C are a very long tenured programming
language that are the ancestors of Java Python.
Java resembles C C but doesnt have
characters like pointers and multiple
inheritances. Therefore, developers with
an understanding of C and C can grab Java
easily quickly.
9. Platform Independence
During the 90s this was the major reason for
Javas popularity. The tagline write once and
run anywhere is enticing enough to grab lots
of attention. This feature still entices
development companies that are low on budget, as
most of the Java apps are developed in Windows
environment run in UNIX platform.
10. Robustness
Robustness equals reliability, and no other
language except Java assures this. In fact, it is
the most highly supported programming language
that is robust scalable. Additionally,
automatic memory management and garbage
collection features make it portable across many
11. Java is Everywhere
Yes, this programming language is omnipresent. On
the desktop systems, smartphones, web, embedded
systems, or wherever you can think of. Having
efficient stability and scalability, Java has
become a universal programming language. For this
reason, Java is gradually gaining a big name in
the realm of the Internet of Things.
12. Multi-Threading
Java holds the multithreading capabilities. This
means that you can develop highly interactive and
responsive apps with the help of a number of
concurrent threads of activities. Making it
simpler, there is concurrent execution of two or
more parts of a program for maximum utilization
of the CPU.
13.Rich Programming API
Java API offers everything that a successful
program needs to know whether it is input/output
handling, networking, utilities, query handling,
database connection, XML parsing, data and time
handing or anything else as per requirement.
Apache Commons, Spring MVC, Hibernate are some
open source libraries. This is another reason why
it is preferred for backend programming.
14. Free Development Tools
Since Java is an open-source language and free
for all, almost all development tools are
available for free download. This makes
developers enthusiastically code in Integrated
Development Environment especially if they are
coding in DOS or notepad. Eclipse and NetBeans
are two powerful development tools.
15. A Huge Developers Community
You will be surprised to know that Java has 2nd
largest StackOverflow community. Also, Java has
4th largest Meetup community with 1,400 Java
Meetup groups completing over 580,000 members
across the globe. This is not all, Java is the
2nd most-tagged language at Github that has over
1.5 million Java projects and 1100 have been
starred by more than 500 individuals.
The most volatile field nowadays is software
development as there is a new programming
language developed every other day. Java is
certainly a magic potion that can take an
enterprise into another level. This language is
being used since ages is here to stay forever.
The long commercial life and wide Java adoption
by the developers for backend development have
built a robust ecosystem of libraries,
documentation, and frameworks aiming at
e-commerce, security, and transactional
