What you will learn
Java is based on the C and C++ programming languages, but differs from these languages is some important ways. The main difference between C/C++ and Java is that in Java all development is done with objects and classes. This main difference provides distinct advantages for programs written in Java, such as multiple threads of control and dynamic loading.
