We live in a beautiful world, where only the lazy haven’t written their own virtual machine or programming language. So whenever a project requiring a managed runtime platform is starting, Python, Ruby, JavaScripts and others all fight to be picked as the weapon of choice.

But if we had to pick just one programming language that you should care about, it’d have to be dear old Java. In 2015, 20 years since its first release, we have multiple reasons as to why Java has managed to outperform many languages, on and off the JVM, and how it has become the most used cross-platform development tool, language and ecosystem.

In this report, we take a look at the top 10 reasons Java is the choice for so many development teams around the world, and why you should consider it for your next project. One of the main qualities Java possesses since the early design days is its simplicity. In that spirit we laid out in plain simple terms why Java outperforms other languages when it comes to popularity, performance, its amazing ecosystem and community.

For the less technical, this report explains the value Java brings to your projects. For fellow developers, we included some other projects in the Java ecosystem that you might want to look at. Check them out, have a play with them. It will make you a better developer.

Join us in congratulating Java and their stewards, Sun and Oracle, for 20 years of leadership and for being one of the most, if not the most, well-balanced compromise between writing productivity, reading intuitiveness, execution performance, project maintainability, technology evolution, application stability and runtime visibility.

Here’s a raise of the glass to you all for making Java and the JVM great, and here’s to the next 20 years!
