A fully object-oriented programming language. Despised by some, it does not compile to machine code as most languages do, but rather to some "bytecode" that is interpreted by the Java Virtual Machine, which is basically emulation no matter what Sun says. Java programs run relatively slowly, but the syntax is pretty easy, and based on C and C++.
Java is a slow mid-level programming language.

An object oriented programing language that is based on C++. It is compiled into Java bytecode, which can be run by a Java virtual machine on any computer. While Java programs are typicaly slower than their counterparts, they can run on any platform capable of runing the JVM.
Java should not be confused with Javascript, a scripting language that only shares a name and some syntax.
public class java{
public static void main(String args){
System.out.prinln("Hello World");
}
}

A small brown Chihuahua that gets treated like a human being although it is obviously just a small, albeit adorable, dog.

Easy ways to spot a Java:
1. has it's own social networking page.
2. dressed in some sort of girly matching dog costume meant to mimic the way a human being would dress.
3. entrance into a room is shortly followed by "ooooh" and "awwww".
4. spotted being carried in a purse or satchel
