Java-based applications are essential for several large and global operations. These apps are generally mission-critical, supporting data-intensive operations and heavy transaction loads. From the chief executive officer through to operations and support staff, everyone is under pressure to ensure there is no downtime for these applications. With almost 25 years of development, Java is a rock-solid platform, especially when considering reliability and stability.
However, Java is not a platform that stands still. Each new Java release adds new features to the language and libraries to make the lives of developers easier. In addition, improvements to the JVM and runtime improve performance fixes to issues reported by users.
Utilizing the latest version of Java is important to ensuring you have the most reliable, secure and stable platform on which to run your applications.
