Java is a high-level, open-source, object-oriented, and general-purpose programming language. Java is both compiled and interpreted programming language as its source code first compiled into byte code then the byte code is interpreted by JVM. In 1995, it was developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems.
Companies using Java are Uber, Airbnb, Google, Netflix, Pinterest, Amazon, etc.
Ruby is a high level, purely object-oriented, and general-purpose programming language. It is an interpreted programming language. In the mid-1990s, it was developed by Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto in Japan.
Companies using Ruby are Github, Shopify, Twitter, Airbnb, Dribbble, etc.
Differences between Java and Ruby :
|Java is a high-level, open-source, object-oriented, and general-purpose programming language.||Ruby is a high level, purely1990sa fewer, object-oriented, and general purpose programming language.|
|Java is considered as both compiled and interpreted programming language.||Ruby is an interpreted programming language.|
|In 1995, it was developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems.||Ruby was developed by Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto in Japan in the mid-1990s.|
|It is a little complex and a general-purpose language but a little slower than Ruby.||It is simpler and little faster than Java.|
|Java is a good choice for high traffic sites and huge computational applications.||Ruby is a good choice for less traffic sites and less load computational applications.|
