why i said every java developer need to know about this is because some big organisations started to use this tool and they are having separate team to work with that tool.. they got positive result with this tool.. so i guessed in future some more organisations may use this tool since the development time is very less if we use this.

Let me get this straight: Yesterday you knew nothing about this at all, and as of today you've identified it as an upcoming trend? What happened?

There's a lot of mystery and hype surrounding Pega and other similar platforms. It's essentially a platform for describing business processes and workflow in a way that the descriptions get turned more-or-less directly into software, or at least turned into requirements that have a fighting chance of getting through the translation into software. Pretty much the principal user of a system like this is the $100 million+ company, it's in widespread use in banking and finance. It's used in a whole lot of scenarios where there are complicated business rules (the kind of rules which if not communicated properly can end up with executives going to jail), and it's used as a tool for all kinds of analytics where the workflow descriptions must be done by people with domain specific knowledge. It's actually pretty neat stuff, but its value isn't apparent to people who don't have the kinds of problems addressed by this type of tool.
Pega is a Business Process Management tool. It is developed on Java and uses OOP and java concepts. And the big advantage is we don't have to have to build the system from the scratch like any conventional programming. It is becoming popular because of that, though most conventional programmers would disagree. And also because of it is agile way, Flexibility,and being extensible.

As for my knowledge pega is a language yet more or less a framework. But I like to describe it as a framework. Because there are no such pega codings.
Mostly the UI manipulation will do the work for us. It resides in a server.
Actually we can write SQL, Java, HTML, etc codes to support extra functionalists. That is the major connection between pega and other languages.
But adding additional language codes will be considered as violation, where you would not stick in to best practices that they have suggested.
