Java is one of the most popular programming languages. We’re just after the new LTS release – Java SE 21. Although it is not always known, the Java platform was used to implement various tools and components used in modern IT systems. Let’s discuss some of the most popular ones.

Programming IDEs

IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse, and NetBeans – the most popular Java Programming IDEs are written mostly in Java language, that’s not surprising. Thanks to the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), they don’t need to be 100% Java. JetBrains invests a lot in Kotlin, so its IDEs leverage it and are written in both languages. IDEs, in most cases, are desktop applications, so they benefit from the fact that Java Runtime Environment can be run on various platforms – Windows, Linux, and MacOS. Modern solutions are quite complex, they offer integration with various frameworks and libraries, to make programming easier. Nowadays they even integrate with AI-like assistants.
