Introduction to Java

One of the most popular languages (according to GitHub). Java is mature, object-oriented, platform-independent, and backward-compatible technology, which gives us a wide range of possibilities when it comes to development.

  • Our team writes clean code and delivers on time a product that works. When providing Java development services, we use dedicated tools, libraries and frameworks, both open-sourced (created by Java’s large community) and licensed.
  • When it is needed, we decide which libraries, frameworks and tools will be the best for our client’s project – because sometimes there is no need to re-invent the wheel.
  • Thanks to our specialty, we can work with any version of Java, and even update older version to the newest one.
  • We make sure our software is well-tested. We write JUnit, integration and automated tests.

Why Java?

Java is one of the most popular programming languages in software development. Custom programming with Java, a general-purpose, high-level, class-based, object-oriented, and open-source programming language is one of the top choices among developers and businesses worldwide. Java follows a simple paradigm WORA – write once, run the code anywhere.  

Java was originally developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems. Released in May 1995 as a core component of Sun Microsystems’ Java platform (a set of computer software and specifications developed at SM, which was later acquired by the Oracle Corporation). The most recent version of Java is 18th released in March 2022.

Java development services 

One of the biggest Java advantages is its ability to move from one computer system to another, which is why Java is very popular for cross-platform project development.  Aside, Java is robust, easy to use, and secure. These factors contributed to the popularity of this programming language for providing numerous solutions.  

Thanks to powerful custom Java development abilities companies like Netflix, Google Android, Spotify, LinkedIn, Amazon, or NASA’s Word Wind – a fully 3D virtual globe that displays geographic data – operate smoothly on daily basis. 

Java is often selected for custom software development projects. This server-side programming language supports the development of web applications. A broad pool of frameworks – Spring, Struts, Hibernate, Apache Hadoop, and JSF – enables stable, and quick web application development.  

In addition to web applications, Java is well suited for Big Data and cloud development, the Internet of Things (IoT), Android Applications (Java is the official programming language of Android Studio), and desktop applications.

Taking advantage of Java’s capabilities

  • The hallmark of Java is its strong community of both enthusiasts and corporations working for a better Java development landscape. The open-source approach, the commitment of developers and engineers, and the way Java is modernized make it one of the most popular languages for writing code. For many, it is relentlessly the best choice for developing enterprise business applications. 
  • Java is continuing to innovate and expand as a language. Long support versions are released every two years. Hence Java software development services at Hicron Software House include not only custom solution development but also migration and upgrade to higher, more recent versions of your code written in Java. 

Java modernization services 

Complementary Java-based software development services include upgrades, modernization, customization of frameworks, legacy migration, QA, reengineering as well as performance tuning.  

The Java platform continues to grow rapidly, and the best Java developers are growing with the platform. Most businesses operate core business-critical Java applications that back important business processes. These enterprises should regularly improve their Java applications. Not only to stay competitive by delivering modern features but also to secure functioning and provide the highest level of performance. 

How to modernize Java applications? The task can be tricky due to complex dependencies and the need for significant testing. However, skilled software partners provide a complete end-to-end migration solution that boosts Return on Investment and reduces the Total Cost of Ownership.

Java Frameworks and libraries 

Programming in Java is also an opportunity to take advantage of a larger ecosystem that consists of several libraries, frameworks, and APIs. This brings, along with the expertise at hand, an even better selection of tools and faster project development. 

Frameworks are often used to solve a specific domain problem. They define a process that allows developers to implement specific functions based on requirements. In addition, built-in modules and functions in frameworks make the coding process faster. Of course, their use is optional. It depends on the individual project requirements and internal arrangements whether the project is based on a framework or pure code.

Some of the most popular software developments with Java

Custom java development services cover the development of native and cross-platform applications for desktop and mobile devices. Firmware, cloud applications, and built-in applets.  

Developers successfully create in Java: 

  • Enterprise applications.
    Java is great for scaling. Therefore, it can be used to develop large-scale web applications. Solutions like Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Custom Relationship Management (CRM), or Enterprise Content Management System (ECMS) are often written in Java. On top of that, Java is a relatively secure programming language, that’s why its use leads the way to develop well-secured business solutions. 
  • Web applications.
    Whether for eCommerce sites with complex architecture or for simple landing pages. Java handles many challenges well. Video games, as well as social media, healthcare, and real estate platforms can be Java’s preferred solution.  
  • Fintech solutions.
    Java can be also good for the development of applications in the fintech area – this is due to its ultimate security and high efficiency when processing data. 
  • Data-heavy applications and AI solutions.
    Java enables also the development of powerful AI models capable of processing huge datasets, running compute-intensive tasks, and automatically visualizing insights. 

Java’s limitations to be aware of 

Java’s versatility unfortunately also comes with some compromises. This one of the most popular programming languages is slower and offers poorer performance than C++ or C. Java is also memory-consuming due to the extra level of compilation and abstraction by the Java Virtual Machine. Java offers many frameworks for Graphic User Interfaces (among them Swing, SWT, JavaFX, and JSF), still, they are not suitable for creating complex UI requirements. Modern languages like Python, C#, etc. provide better GUI builders. 

Popularity of Java programming language  

Despite some limitations, still, Java software development services are on demand worldwide.  TIOBE Index for July 2022 ranks Java as the third most popular programming language. The Java community has always been known for its revamped approach. Consequent to this ongoing work, Java remains the primary choice for developing rock-solid, highly scalable, and cross-threaded software applications for virtually any business requirement. 

At Hicron Software House, as a company that knows Java inside out, we first do an in-depth analysis of the project before recommending a technology stack. By measuring the requirements, we advise the most optimal solution. With practical knowledge of Java’s capabilities as well as its limitations, we tailor an optimal solution for the specific needs of individual projects.

Depending on the project, here are some of the tools, libraries, and frameworks we use: 

  • Spring, 
  • Spring Boot, 
  • jOOQ, 
  • Vavr, 
  • Spock, 
  • Intellij IDEA, 
  • Eclipse. 

Additionally, on Java’s VMs, we can run: 

  • Groovy, 
  • Scala,
  • JRuby,
  • Kotlin, 
  • Clojoure,
  • Vaadin. 

In fact, the list goes on. The use of a particular framework or tool depends heavily on individual project requirements. We can suggest you a broad range of features, or we can write the code in pure Java. 

Software partnership with Java experience and expertise 

Entrusting Java software development allows you to strengthen your custom programming. It might be a win-win option for companies with no technical expertise in-house or a lean business approach. But not only that. Backing up software development with domain experts allows for enrichment and knowledge exchange. Partnership-based application development is not just about fueling software development, it’s also about extra support and championing the best practices. 

If you have doubts regarding the technology choice, we are here to help! At Hicron Software House, we holistically back software development regardless of the industry. Working closely with our partners, we recommend the best solutions. Perhaps custom Java development services will be one of them!
