Java is a set of computer software and specifications for developing application software and deploying it in a cross-platform computing environment. Java can be used to build and deploy a web application, or an app for mobile devices. It may be a required component for a development tool like Visual Studio or Android Studio. Some open source desktop apps sometimes require an installation of Java as a dependency.
There are two main types of Java available: Oracle Java, which is ONLY licensed for use with Callista, and OpenJDK, which is the free, open source version anyone can use.
