Python vs Java

Difference between Python and Java

Java programing language and Python programing language are the two most used language by the programmers in the development field. Java was introduced in 1995 by James Gosling. Although java was introduced late in the market when compared with Python programing language which was introduced I 1989 by Guido Van Rossum, due to java’s nature it became more popular. Let’s have a look at the comparison of Python vs Java.

Python vs Java

AttributesPython ProgramingJava Programing
AboutPython is the general-purpose interpreted programing language It is interactive, object-oriented and high level programing language.Java was introduced in 1995 by James Gosling. It is Strong, Platform independent, and Robust programing language.
EfficiencyAs python is interpreted language hence it is slower than compiled languagesJava is faster than python as it is Compiled language
SyntaxPython syntax are simpler and easier to rememberJava syntax are harder as compared with python programming
Variable declarationNo need to declare the type of the variable while initializing it will automatically be declared on program executionWe need to declare the type of the variable while we initialize a variable in Java programing
Library functionsPython programming have a wast library of functions as compared to any programing languageWhen compared with python, the library of Java language is not much wast
Frameworks usedPython have lower number of frameworks Some of the popular frameworks are Django and FlaskThere are many frameworks in java, Some of the popular frameworks are Spring, Hibernate, etc
ApplicationsWeb development, Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, etcDesktop GUI, Mobile applications, Web Servers, Scientific applications,  etc

Python programing language

The canonical, “Python is a great first language”, elicited, “Python is a great last language!” Python programing language is said to be the cleanest language to code because of the great syntax. Python is the successor of ABC programing language and its inventor took all the good features of the ABC language and improved the language. Today python is one of the most used languages in the programmer’s community. Python has a great library which makes the language easier and more efficient. Some areas where python is used are:

  • Machine Learning
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Data Science
  • GUI
  • Web Scraping


Java Programing Language

Java was introduced in 1995 by James Gosling. Java have some features which made the java language so popular in the developer’s community. Language is Stable, Strong, Robust and Static. Java language is used in many areas like Mobile applications, Scientific Applications, Web development, etc. Principle goals in the creation of java language were:

  • It should be simple and object-oriented.
  • It should be robust and secure.
  • It should be Portable.
  • High Performance.
  • It should be Dynamic and Threaded.

Mobile applications, Web development, Web server designing, Scientific applications, etc are some applications of java programing language

Java program to find the number is Even or Odd

import java.util.Scanner;
public class Main
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		Scanner sc = new Scanner(;
      System.out.println("Enter a number :" );
      int num = sc.nextInt();
      if (num % 2 == 0){
         System.out.println("Entered number is an even number");
      } else {
         System.out.println("Entered number is an odd number");

Python program to find the number is Even or Odd

number = int(input('Enter the number :'))
if number % 2 == 0:
    print('Number is Even')
    print('Number is Odd')
