The programming languages are the set of instructions to the device so that it can perform tasks required and give various outputs. The programming languages are coded together for the creation of a program which would help to give a set of instruction to the device to get some output. They are mostly used for the app developments.
And there are some programming languages which are convenient for the developers to use. These can be considered as the power of the advancing technology that we use in our day-to-day life. And now let’s come to the question, whether the Java is going to be replaced by flutter, but the answer can be known in the later part of the article after discussing few basic things about the Java as well as flutter.
A few basics about java
Java is completely object-oriented programming and class-based as well. The best thing about is that it is a platform independent programming language in which the code can run the language can run on all the platforms which support java without the necessity of the recompilation. Java was created with five basic goals:
- The programming language has to be simple.
- It has to be secured.
- It must also be portable.
- It must have high speed in the execution.
- It must be interpreted and dynamic.
If we talk of the performance of the language, then it cannot be denied that after the introduction of the just-in-time compilation in the year 1997-1998, the speed of the execution and the performance was paced drastically to a considerable extent. But this is quite true that it consumes more memory than those of the programs written in the C or C++. And after the introduction of the java. Util package the programming language is continuously on an elevation how far the enhancement is considered.
The flutter is a mobile application development software development kit which is created by Google so that application for the Android operating system can be created. The very first version of the Flutter which was known as the Sky ran on the Android Operating System. Flutter community is really active and there are tons of Flutter tutorials as well to help beginners. Flutter has three major components, and they are as follows:
This provides support by making use of the Google Skia graphics library. This also interfaces platform-specific software development kit such as the ones which are provided by the Android and iOS. These are written in C++.
These are written in the dart, and they provide the basic classes and function which are used for the creation of the application using the Flutter.
This expresses the part of the user’s interface. Material design is the widgets which implement design language of Google with the same name.
According to some technicians working for some application at Google, the majority of the people these days are on Android, and therefore a current version release was for the Android users but when the same was planned in the case of the iOS then it was found that the Flutter is a strong contender and now all the production of the application both for the Android operating system as well as iOS. Thus, flutter is a nice option in alteration to the Java.
Following are the reasons why this is considered as an awesome option with the alternative to Java:
It took about three months for three engineers to bring out the version 1 for the Android users only but with the use of the flutter, it took one engineer three months to develop the app for the Android users as well as the iOS. When considering the coding of the programs with the flutter, it was estimated that the code was one-third of the one which was coded only for the Android users.
Most people happen to believe that the app developed with the use of the flutter are the ones who are native either for the android users or the iOS users. The performance of the applications developed with the flutter is quite nice in the cross-platform.
This is the best option in the substitution of the java as it provides a guide for the better development of the patterns. This becomes profitable as the application developed grows larger. This is why the flutter is considered as the most appropriate option for the coding purpose.
The above things explain that flutter is a great option for the coding in the alteration of the Java but if the question is about replacing java, then this is quite an impossible thing as of now as this needs a lot of revolution. So this can be said that the flutter has a completely different way of approach that makes the performance fast as well as nice. Undeniably Google is a huge user of flutter, and there are numerous things where the flutter is used for the coding purpose.
Due to the advanced technology of the flutter, it avoids the testing of the application on the older version, and thus this is the reason why the flutter is known to be better than that of the java. But this is not at all true that Java is to be replaced by the Google as flutter needs lots of advancements to be able to replace Java completely. It is quite sure that people would love to use the applications which are developed by a programming language of the Google.
Moreover, there were so many problems with the compatibility of the Java with the Oracle, and there are so many reasons for Flutter to overtake Java. One of the very reason can be the cross-platform performance of the Flutter. This feels so platform independent and has made the running of the applications on different platforms quite sorted. But again as of now, Flutter cannot ever be replaced in place of Java by Google as the Flutter needs a lot of development.
