Q: How Java enabled High Performance?
A: Java uses Just-In-Time compiler to enable high performance. Just-In-Time compiler is a program that turns Java bytecode, which is a program that contains instructions that must be interpreted into instructions that can be sent directly to the processor.
Q: Why Java is considered dynamic?
A: It is designed to adapt to an evolving environment. Java programs can carry an extensive amount of run-time information that can be used to verify and resolve accesses to objects on run-time.
Q: What is Java Virtual Machine and how it is considered in the context of Java’s platform-independent feature?
A: When Java is compiled, it is not compiled into platform specific machine, rather into platform-independent bytecode. This bytecode is distributed over the web and interpreted by Virtual Machine (JVM) on whichever platform it is being run.
