If you write Java code once you can run it everywhere where the Java environment is supported.

Java programming language is using in the many domains of Practical uses. As 2016 Java is the most popular programming language in use. If you are a beginner and want to start learning Java then you may want to know what is the Practical uses of Java programming language.  Here we will discuss 10 most and best uses of Java programming language in the real world.

Java Basic Syntax

Java syntax is very interesting. All the java code is written in a class and sub-classes. Java Syntax mostly influenced by C++. Java uses many C++ implementation methods such as printf  method. A Java source file must save with .java file extension. Basically, the source file name is declared after the main public class, such as HelloWorldApp.java. In order to run a java source file system must have java environment supported and the source file must be compiled in bytecode by using a java compiler. See here the most basic example of Java Programming Language.

Java Hello World Example

class HelloWorldApp {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("Hello World!");

Write the above code in any text editor with java file extension and run it on a java supported environment. It will print “Hello World” message in the console.
