Programming Languages are a fundamental part of computer science, they are fundamental tools in a programmer’s toolbox and critical to almost every programming.
In terms of speed, Java is faster than Python as it is a compiled language. It takes less time to execute code.
Java’s history in the enterprise and its slightly more verbose coding style mean that Java legacy systems are typically larger and more numerous than python’s.
2) Code –
Java is very verbose as compared to Python. It takes 10 lines of code to read from a file in Java.
The trend in the USA for the last 5 Years
The trend in the India for the last 5 Years
This clearly suggests that Java was famous previously but slowly its declining its popularity in developed countries, but still in India Java is still the popular language but slowly python is gaining its momentum.
Now if we look at salary for fresher in Python the
Python has little edge over Java due to its demand in automation. Now ad days
jobs are mostly related to automation and Artificial intelligence which prefers
Python over Java that’s why salary in case of fresher is more in Python.
But in case of experienced candidates salary for Java is high Because Java has been in use way before python became popular. The experience engineers find it convenient for them to stick to their comfort zone instead of moving to a new language.
Both the languages are good in their own, so there won’t be a lack of resources once you choose one and embark on your journey.
