Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Java SE

Java SE was the de facto language at my previous company and was used across the whole organization. It was used to create software
for all business areas from marketing to CRM.
  • Java SE has a very strong community behind it so whenever you face a problem an instant search on the internet and you will find hundreds of solutions, code examples and recommendations easily.
  • Java SE has tons of open source frameworks built around it, so for any business or technical problem, you can find many frameworks like spring, hibernate, JUnit etc ...
  • Java itself is a great object-oriented programming language constantly evolving. It's very stable and constantly receiving bug fixes.
  • New features to the language are added all the time like lambda expressions, streams, and pipelines, new API's etc ...
  • More functional programming paradigms can be incorporated into Java SE.
  • Java could use some more performance increases.
  • Finding engineers with Java SE knowledge is very easy so finding talent is very easy.
  • Stability of the platform allows for secure 24 hours running rock hard applications.
  • Very easy to find solutions to problems we encounter thanks to the huge community behind it.
  • .NET
Oracle is free to use and has many open source frameworks, tools and IDE's around it. That was the primary reason to choose Java SE.
For all kinds of web-based business applications, I'd recommend the use of Java SE as the programming language. A very stable language with great readability and community support.
