Java has been historically maligned by its own users. However, it’s still one of the most popular programming languages in the world. Why? The short answer is because it’s useful. Java coding has led to enterprise applications, Desktop applications, and web and app servers. It’s still being used today to design games and embedded systems and even serve big data.

Desktop GUI Apps
The Java programming language is great for developing interface functionalities including buttons, menus, and lists. Hence, It’s great for developing desktop apps that require all these features. For example, tablets, tabbed panels, scroll panes, and trees all require Java. It also responds to mouse clicks and key entries.
At one point, Java was the main programming language used to develop all sorts of mobile apps including games. This was when Nokia reigned supreme. However, even today, Java ME and J2ME are used to develop Android applications. Billions of devices around the world use Java for applications that run on smartphones and feature phones.
Enterprise applications operate for an entire organization to serve the needs of its employees. Java is often the first choice for these applications due to robust features. Oracle claims that 97% of enterprise apps use Java for development. In fact, Java Enterprise Edition is an API built with the tools necessary for the development of scalable and multi-tiered apps.
