I have been a java backend developer for 3 years now and had no problems finding projects so far. That being said allot of job requests this last year are asking for more than just java on itself. Things like angular and spring and aws cloud are commonly asked allongside java skills now. Also tools like maven and git are essential when working on bigger projects.

Even thought there are other languages that are on the rise right now, like Python, Golang, Javascript, and not many company use mostly Java nowadays, however, there is no doubt that Java is still the most popular language today because of its wide applicability compared to other languages.

Yes of course

Having much experience in many languages, including both Java and C# over the years, Java, as a language, simply hasn't evolved at the pace of C#. Java just falls short when comparing equivalent approaches to how C# and .NET handles LINQ, Generics, class property accessors, JSON serialization, Async/Await, boxing / unboxing of primitive types, yada, yada, I could go on for a while. Here is one of many articles that highlight many features that Java developers have been deprived of for so many years. https://blog.overops.com/c-vs-java-5-irreplaceable-c-features-wed-kill-to-have-in-java/ Also, .NET Core is now a strong portability competitor against the JVM for multi platform support.

Java is still popular and most of the smart devices are running through the Java programming language. You can take the example of Android. Large part of Java is written in Java.

Yep of course it's still popular

Yes it's , Java is still popular because it is among the best rated, & among major subjects in software engineering & programming for Mac, both laptops, iPhone & smart phones. Concepts, applications, programming languages -> being valued & much in demand.(java, JS). All positive recommendations + references to java related queries.

Well it is still 'popular' since a lot of programmers prefer it for its super power (Does not have limitations).....But a small fact still remains, most programmers are choosing other languages over it because of its complexity so somehow Java☕ is slowly losing it's popularity 🔰....

if you are in a science major, whether it be biology or physics, python will be better to learn than Java. if you are a web developer, Javascript, Node, PHP and even Ruby will be better to learn. if you are a iOS mobile app developer, assuming you are not using React.native, you need Swift and perhaps Objective-C, no use for Java on the Front End. And if you are an Android mobile app developer, Java has been replaced by Kotlin. Even for system programming, C/C++ and now Rust offer sounder and better performance. Java has been a preferred language for database development, especially Oracle databases. Of course, Microsoft advocates C# over Java. Java remains a preferred language for AP Computer Science students for now. However you might learn more reading SICP and learning DrRacket or Scheme. Thus, Java has all the warts of a multiparadigm programming language with intermediate code base, including null reference errors, platform heterogeneity, and memory management with Garbage collection, not to mention some security vulnerabilities.

sree harsha If "NO ONE CAN BEAT JAVA" could you explain me why C++ and Python courses have both more than 1 milion of learners than Java one? The syntax isn 't intuitive as the other languages' and being an high-level language it can do nothing without its libraries and modules. Every language is better than other languages in different uses, like PHP for server programming or C for low-level operations so don 't say that no one can beat Java
