Is Java a dying language?
Java has been on the decline for a number of years. If you look at the TIOBE index from the mid to late part of this decade it has been losing percentage points. From May 2016 to May 2017, for example, the language declined 6% – this indicates that it's losing mindshare to other languages.
Should I learn Java or Python?
Java may be a more popular option, but Python is widely used. People from outside the development industry have also used Python for various organizational purposes. Similarly, Java is comparatively faster, but Python is better for lengthy programs.
What is Java best for?
Java can be found anywhere you look. It's a primary language for Android development. You will find it in web applications, governmental websites, and big data technologies such as Hadoop and Apache Storm. And it's also a classic choice for scientific projects, especially natural language processing.
Is Java hard to learn?
Java is known for being easier to learn and use than its predecessor, C++. However, it's also known for being slightly harder to learn than Python due to Java's relatively lengthy syntax. If you've already learned either Python or C++ before learning Java then it certainly won't be hard.
