Question by zzack9: What can you make and put on the web with the program “Java”?
What kind of programs and tasks can you complete by using the computer programming language “Java” and what are its pros and cons compared to another program like it?
Answer by Joe S
Java is cross platform without any changes to code. It requires the JRE and has an excellent support community.
Other languages can access system information & hardware items, they can also do more Operating System Native things.
Although some libraries exist for Java to also allow it to do this.
Basically, if you want to make something accessible to the majority of users without having to create your programs 6x over, then use Java, if you want to access OS specific things, use C++ / C
