Java 1.02: 250 classes. Slow with lots of bugs.

Java 1.1: 500 classes. A little faster. Friendlier, gaining popularity, and a better GUI code.

Java 2.0: 2300 classes. Much faster. Became the language of choice for new enterprise and mobile applications.

Java 5.0: 3500 classes. More powerful (Easier to develop). Changes to the language itself making it more easily understood as well as implemented features that were popular in other languages at the time.


There are more versions -- however my Java booklet was published in 2002.

Is java compiled language or interpreted language?

Java is both a compiled language and an interpreted language.No, technically, Java is solely a compiled language. Java source code is ALWAYS compiled (via javac or similar program) down into a bytecode.The confusion may be that the Java bytecode is usually run on a Java Virtual Machine implementation, which both compiles the bytecodes to native machine code AND also runs as an interpreter for some java bytecode. The JVM is form of a system emulator, which is NOT specificly related to the Java language itself. That is, it is entirely possible to make a hardware machine (which has already been done) which runs Java bytecode natively, directly on the hardware.Do not confuse the Java language with Java bytecode.
