Java is core programming Language. If you have a good hand in Java so you can develop an application on android application too.

In Java technologies as developer you can go on a long run in the coding field without switching a JAVA to other platforms .NET ASP with language like C#, C++.

Being a JEE developer is the undoubtedly cool career choice for higher salaries. Java having a lot of reason on market demands. Java language stands with a good hold on market requirements since last 10 years.

- Java is core language and Android platform required Java understating for mobile application development.
- Java bytecode works on any device (JVM required) no need to compile code again and again.
-Java is one of the excellent languages for handling memory organization. A garbage collection gave you a good hold on effective memory use.
- Java API and JAVA server page still used in large organization for build web application.

As a survey of 2016 on developer Job Java is 2nd top demanded language after SQL.

SQL
Java
C#
Objective-C, Swift is going to replace Objective-C, so learn Swift
Python

Java, C and C++

In case of C++, it could be a better choice for making tools and high-performance platform-specific libraries. Java could be better for front-end applications. You can simply develop generic software on JAVA and gain good money. Java is full of possibilities so for higher probabilities and out from box Java is great option. Even in C++ you have to take care of memory by self.

Java is Object-Oriented while C is procedural. C uses the top-down {sharp & smooth} approach while JAVA uses the bottom-up {on the rocks} approach. Java is strongly type-checked while C is not. JAVA supports Method Overloading while C does not support overloading at all. Unlike C, JAVA does not support Preprocessors, macro(upto certain level we can implement macros but those are not at all efficient and will be consider as bad practice), etc. Many new features, exception handling, automatic memory-management, native threads, etc.
.Net and JAVA

From the point of .Net the Difference between .Net and Java is a purely Platform independent means the application that will work in any kind of Operating System. But, .Net is platform dependent software. .Net support to develop application in different languages and to develop application Rapidly. This feature is not exist in Java. Answer to why is Java more popular, long time ago, many people believed Java was slower than C because Java had to run through a virtual machine. Today however, Time and speed aren't really affected by the programming language or the used technology as much as affected by memory cards capacity and processors speed (Clock rate).
Hench programmers and developers started looking for the most powerful yet easy to 'learn and work with' programming language. And there came Java with the multi-platform support, Object oriented methodology and other great capabilities and features.

On the other hand, General Purpose applications are still developed using C++ because it doesn't need any intermediate software to run and i think that java it's been improved everyday by the newest releases of the implementation of the virtual machine.

Java is so versatile and used in so many places; someone can learn the basics in a relatively short amount of time and find an entry level job much easier. Java is emerging in IoT (internet of things), and java is emerging in micro services.

Java has been well accepted in various business & domains (banking, health care, nutrition, agriculture, education, finance, telecom, biotechnology and many more). Java has got huge and best community from developers, researchers, trainers, domain experts.

Java may be blacking some areas. Hence it is still evolving without much loosing backward compatibility.

Some cool features of Java :
1. Platform Independencies (you can run at any platform)
2. Robust (No crashing)
3. Multi Threading ( able to handle many processes )
4. Simple easy (no confusion with pointers)
5. Distributes ( Many developer can work together )

With these all fulfillments Java is good choice for carrier and for leading up with a great carrier.
