Java is a class-based and object-oriented general-purpose programming language. Java Application Developers can create code anywhere and run it anywhere since the programming language is built in such a way that they don’t have to worry about the underlying computer architecture. It’s also known as “write once, run anywhere.”
It is a well known fact that Java is the ‘King of all programming languages’. Ever since it was founded, this language has become a reliable backbone for countless devices and applications.
You would be wondering why Java Application Development is so popular and where it is exactly used, here is a list:
- Desktop GUI Applications
- Enterprise Applications
- Mobile Applications
- Gaming Applications
- Web-based Applications
- Distributed Applications
- Web servers and Application servers
- Embedded Systems
- Software Tools
- Cloud-based Applications
- Big Data Technologies
- Scientific Applications
Desktop GUI Applications:
A graphical user interface (GUI) is a set of visual components that interact with computer software. A graphical user interface (GUI) shows items that convey information and indicate actions that the user can take. When the user interacts with the items, they change colour, size, and visibility.
Desktop apps can be easily developed using Java application development. A Java GUI application is a desktop programme that employs the standard Java Application Development components. There are three main GUI component sets in Java.
- AWT (Abstract Windowing Toolkit)
The AWT (Abstract Windowing Toolkit) is a Java Application Development interface for creating window-based applications. It is “not entirely Java-based” because it makes use of window user interface elements like a menu, a button, a list, and so on.
Swing is an AWT-based GUI widget toolkit that includes complex components such as trees, tables, scroll panes, tabbed panels, and lists. Swing is “completely Java-based,” and it develops apps using Java’s Swing components. It responds to all mouse clicks, keystrokes, and other inputs.
If you want something new and shiny, then take a look at JavaFX. JavaFX is a graph-based approach to developing desktop applications in Java that is distinct from AWT and Swings. JavaFX is a collection of graphics and media packages that allow programmers to create, test, debug, and deploy rich client applications (RIAs)
