Java is the software development language we use to create dynamic web sites, interactive applets, and secure server applications. First released by Sun in 1996, Java was originally targeted for TV set-top boxes and web browsers. The software development community, however, quickly saw its value as a developer-friendly language and adopted it for server software and other applications. Java also appears on mobile devices such as Palm Pilots and cell phones.

Java became popular because it addresses many of the challenges that developers face, while still remaining a low-level language with better flexibility and performance than C and C++. “High-level” languages such as Visual Basic (ASPs) and Perl provide similar simplification, but only at the cost of flexibility and performance.

Lokitech was an early adopter of Java. Though we have remained open to other technologies, particularly as clients request, we tend to return to Java often since it allows us to build solutions for our clients faster, cheaper, and better.

Lokitech clients have benefited from Java in the following ways:
  • Reduced maintenance
    Java provides the flexibility to design software where each piece of code does only one thing. The simpler each individual piece of code is, the easier the application is to understand and maintain.

  • Flexibility in adding new features
    Java’s flexibility allows Lokitech developers to design applications that will serve our clients’ present needs and future business goals. Adding features to an application in Java is less time consuming than with other languages, making it easier to add new features after the initial deployment.

  • Performance
    Like C and C++, Java is compiled rather than interpreted, a bulky method which forces each requested function to parse each line of code in the system in order to perform the right task. Compiling code means that it is translated from human-readable code to a machine-readable code, thereby greatly improving performance.

  • Interoperability and scalability
    No other language provides a business as many options for upgrading. Java allows us to move across platforms. For example, we may develop an application on a Windows 98 machine, deploy it to a Windows 2000 or Linux server, and then upgrade it to a Solaris server. Java can also run on a cluster of servers so that a system can handle hundreds of thousands of users.

  • Smoother testing
    Another advantage of using a compiled language is that more errors can be caught during development, instead of during the testing phase. Reduced testing saves Lokitech and their clients time and money.
