Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Java SE

Java is the most widely used programming language at our company. The flexibility (OS agnostic), ease of rapid development, as well as the relative high performance helps us react quickly to our ever changing ecosystem (ad-tech). We use Java on all types of applications, from a low latency exchange to a backend web API for a user-facing application.
  • The JVM makes deploying across platforms simple
  • Widely supported in the open-source community
  • Actively maintained and developed
  • Very object oriented, hard to use modern functional programming paradigms
  • GC can cause performance issues
  • Rapid development
  • JVM tuning yields lower hardware costs
Java is the backbone of Scala. Lots of the improvements of the newer version of Java have been based on the improvements Scala introduced (functional programming features, among others). In this way Java and Scala are very symbiotic.
Java is very useable and very readable. The only complaint I have is annotation and how they hide and obfuscate code.
Great support for Oracle and the open-source community

Did implementation of Oracle Java SE go as expected?


Would you buy Oracle Java SE again?


Java is well suited for an application that needs to focus on applying business logic and rapid feature development. Java is lacking when performance and computing resources are constrained.
