Java is a full object oriented programming language. You can do anything with Java that you can do with a program such a COBOL or C or C++. Java is cleaner and easier to use. Practically everything in Java is either a class, method, or object. Java programs are compiled to a byte code format that can be run by interpreters on many platforms including
Windows operating systems, Solaris, Macintosh systems, etc. The code can be executed in a safe environment that prevents it from introducing viruses, deleting or modifying files, or otherwise destroying data or crashing system operation.
