Java allows you to play online games, chat with people around the world, calculate your mortgage interest, and view images in 3D, just to name a few. It’s also integral to the intranet applications and other e-business solutions that are the foundation of corporate computing.

KEY BENEFITS OF JAVA

Java Runs on over 850 million devices – Oracle Corporation.

WHY USE JAVA TECHNOLOGIES

  • Grails

    Grails is an Open Source, full stack, web application framework for the JVM. It takes advantage of the Groovy programming language and convention over configuration to provide a productive and stream-lined development experience.

  • Groovy

    Groovy is an agile and dynamic language for the Java Virtual Machine. It builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk.

  • Swing

    Swing is the primary Java GUI widget toolkit. It is part of Oracle’s Java Foundation Classes (JFC) — an API for providing a graphical user interface (GUI) for Java programs. Provides a set of “lightweight” (all-Java language) components that, to the maximum degree possible, work the same on all platforms.

  • JSP

    JavaServer Pages (JSP) technology provides a simplified, fast way to create dynamic web content. JSP technology enables rapid development of web-based applications that are server- and platform-independent.

  • Servlet

    Java Servlet technology provides dynamic, user-oriented content in web applications using a request-response programming model. Servlets run in a servlet container which handles the networking side (e.g. parsing an HTTP request, connection handling etc). One of the best-known open source servlet containers is Tomcat.

  • JUnit is a simple framework to write repeatable tests. It is an instance of the xUnit architecture for unit testing frameworks. Unit tests ensure that code works as intended. They are also very helpful to ensure that the code still works as intended in case you need to modify code for fixing a bug or extending functionality.

  • Maven’s primary goal is to allow a developer to comprehend the complete state of a development effort in the shortest period of time. Maven allows a project to build using its project object model (POM) and a set of plugins that are shared by all projects using Maven, providing a uniform build system.

  • Ant

    Apache Ant is a Java library and command-line tool whose mission is to drive processes described in build files as targets and extension points dependent upon each other. The main known usage of Ant is the build of Java applications. Ant supplies a number of built-in tasks allowing to compile, assemble, test and run Java applications.

  • MVC

    MVC Pattern stands for Model-View-Controller Pattern. The idea is to separate the user interface (the Presentation in the previous example) into a View (creates the display, calling the Model as necessary to get information), and Controller (responds to user requests, interacting with both the View and Controller as necessary).

  • RichFaces

    RichFaces 4 builds upon the pioneering Ajax support that began with RichFaces 3 and is standardized in JSF 2. In addition to extending these ajax capabilities, RichFaces also improves other areas of JSF 2, including usability, performance tuning, dynamic resources, skinning, and component development.

  • JMS

    The Java Message Service (JMS) API is a Java Message Oriented Middleware (MOM) API for sending messages between two or more clients. JMS is a part of the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition, and is defined by a specification developed under the Java Community Process as JSR 914.

  • JPA

    The Java Persistence API (JPA) is a Java programming language application programming interface specification that describes the management of relational data in applications using Java Platform, Standard Edition and Java Platform, Enterprise Edition.

  • Log4J

    With log4j it is possible to enable logging at runtime without modifying the application binary. The log4j package is designed so that these statements can remain in shipped code without incurring a heavy performance cost. Logging behavior can be controlled by editing a configuration file, without touching the application binary.

  • Solr

    SolrTM is the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search platform from the Apache LuceneTM project. Its major features include powerful full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, near real-time indexing, dynamic clustering, database integration, rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling, and geospatial search.

  • Lucene

    Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform.

  • iBatis/MyBatis

    The MyBatis data mapper framework makes it easier to use a relational database with object-oriented applications. MyBatis couples objects with stored procedures or SQL statements using a XML descriptor or annotations.

  • JSF

    JavaServer Faces (JSF) is a Java specification for building component-based user interfaces for web applications. It was formalized as a standard through the Java Community Process and is part of the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition.

  • Spring

    First released in June 2014, Spring IO brings together the Spring family of projects into a cohesive and versioned foundational platform for modern applications. On top of this foundation it also provides domain-specific execution environments for a variety of enterprise workloads.

  • Struts

    Apache Struts is a free, open-source, MVC framework for creating elegant, modern Java web applications. It favors convention over configuration, is extensible using a plugin architecture, and ships with plugins to support REST, AJAX and JSON.

  • Hibernate

    Hibernate ORM (Hibernate in short) is an object-relational mapping library for the Java language, providing a framework for mapping an object-oriented domain model to a traditional relational database.
