What is Java?
Java is considered one of the most popular programming languages. Java is a typed object-oriented programming language developed by Sun Microsystems (and subsequently acquired by Oracle). Development is mainly performed by a community organized through the Java Community Process. The language and the main technologies that implements it are distributed under the GPL but the trademark rights are owned by Oracle Corporation. Code written in Java (using the JVM – Java Virtual Machine) is transformed into bytecode and due to this, programs can run on any system where the JVM is installed. Therefore, Java is often called a cross-platform language. Most often, Java is used to develop backend programs and android applications.Continue reading “How to Install Java on Ubuntu, Windows, and MacOS”
In this tutorial, our objective is to install WildFly on an unmanaged CentOS 7 server. WildFly is a managed application runtime server and Java software platform used to provision Java applications and services.
