They are not connected in any way. Obviously, they both share the same word, “Java”, in their names. But each language has its syntax, plugins, frameworks, and other features. We’ll present a brief overview of both languages in this blog and some of the similarities and differences between them.
Java is a popular and versatile programming language. Sun Microsystems first released Java in 1995. It is a server-side, class-based, and object-oriented programming language. Java ran on a virtual machine environment and promised: “write once, run anywhere.”
Example of Java Code:
Java syntax is similar to C++. Therefore, if you have written any program in C++, then you surely see some similarities between the syntax of each language.
