Could you re-phrase your question?

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

welcome to ranch,

change the order of your question.

  • History
  • Advantage
  • Importance


  • there is no link I have for importance but you'll conclude yourself after your reading.

    If you want to work with Java it is very important to you to learn. If you do not want, why would you want to learn it? [=

    Quite apart from the importance of learning anything significant, Java represents the first effort to make an OO languange accessible to all but the authors of those who (quire rightly) were "pointing" us in the right direction.

    C++ was a "superset" of C, and has always suffered as a result (arguments please), but Java redefined the boundaries of what a programmer "needs to be concerned with". You create objects, you use them, but otherwise the syntax is very C-like (a language very familiar to most of us old farts).

    My question is: do you have a better alternative? Languages tend to evolve from other ones, because the syntax is understood.

    Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

    Why is Java important?

    There's a hidden assumption in that question, namely the assumption that Java is important. But in fact it isn't important. There are 7 billion people in this world, and about 6.999 billion of them don't know how to program in Java and are perfectly happy being that way.

    I think the answer would be different for everyone. I learned it because I found it interesting, fun, and somewhat challenging.

    Others learn it so they can have a career.

    I'm sure other learns it because their teacher made them.

    the answer to this depends on the answer to the previous question.

    I gave you a plus for philosophy, but I presume OP's question was grounded somewhere in programming.
