In the year 1995, Sun Microsystems was the first to release a computing platform and programming language as Java. Java has proven of great use since then till today. Most of the computing system like a laptop, desktop, cell phone and many more are Java installed and work on the platform of Java based only. The main cause of Java as to be so commonly used is its reliability and security. Talking about mobile games, or game consoles, a maximum of the games are developed as on the Java programming and are working only on the Java platform. Now, there are many upgraded versions of Java, commonly known as J2EE and J2ME.
J2EE is the upgraded version of by Java by Sun Microsoft with the collaboration of IBM. Looking after the demanding scenario and future demand, it was developed to make application development easier and secure to run. APIs and Protocols are the major two services on J2EE platform, which helps in developing multitired web based application. It does not require much programming and coding as it is attached, and link to the database and retrieve information on its own in simple command. These advanced features have made J2EE more common and popular among the developers for smart and secure web services developing.
J2ME is called as Java 2 Platform as Micro Edition. Talking about the J2ME, it is basically for mobile application development. J2ME is totally different from other and previous versions of Java. In the IT industry for mobile computing like its OS and application development. The major cause for J2ME to be adapted by mobile technology is because of the few benefits like; improved security, consistency of applications across devices, superior user interface with graphics, the ability to function off-line out of wireless coverage, peer to peer networking and anyone can create an application and market it.
