What was the need of Java?

'It was designed to make things Flexible.' To allow developer writing code that would run on any machine irrespective of its architecture(i.e. x86, MIPS etc) or platform(i.e. Windows, macOS, Linux etc).

Actually, at that days, languages like c++ was running in a limited space.
I am addressing them as 'in a limited space' because when code compiles through c++ compiler, it outputs a machine code according to their hardware configuration and OS specific. It means if we change hardware configuration or OS then we need to change the code and this really not sounds good.

Then Java came to overcome this.
Java was intelligent enough, It was not playing with that machine code, It creates own machine(JVM) and owns machine code(Bytecode). Now sounds good. So now Programmer just install JVM on a computer and start without any care of dependency.

Conclusion: At the time of C++ there was we need to change the code according to the machine and at the time of Java we need to change the JVM according to the machine and the good news is that different JVMs for different machines are available so developers have no need to give extra effort to change the code.

Why "F" and "L" suffix | (10.0F, 10L)

Let us take it this way, We will create their needs. So we will get why they are needed. Try to guess, which functions will be executed in the following program: public class MyClass {     public static void main(String args[]) {         MyClass obj = new MyClass();         obj.fun1(10);     }     void fun1(byte val){         System.out.println(val);     }     void fun1(int val){         System.out.println(val);     }     void fun1(float val){         System.out.println(val);     }     void fun1(long val){         System.out.println(val);     }     } It seems like every method is capable to run this program because 10 is still literal because It has no data type. Before Java, In previous technologies, this scenario gave an ambiguity error. But Java solves this problem by removing the concepts of literals. It means Java provide a data type immediately when these born. So here 10 is no more literal. Java provides Integer data type for it. So now it is of Integer t

Promises and Async-await in depth : Asynchronous Programming in Javascript

Promises and Asynchronous Programming One of the most powerful aspects of JavaScript is how easily it handles asynchronous programming. As a language created for the Web, JavaScript needed to be able to respond to asynchronous user interactions such as clicks and key presses from the beginning. Node.js further popularized asynchronous programming in JavaScript by using callbacks as an alternative to events. As more and more programs started using asynchronous programming, events and callbacks were no longer powerful enough to support everything developers wanted to do.  Promises  are the solution to this problem. Promises are another option for asynchronous programming, and they work like futures and deferreds do in other languages. A promise specifies some code to be executed later (as with events and callbacks) and also explicitly indicates whether the code succeeded or failed at its job. You can chain promises together based on success or failure in ways that make your code easier t
