Visual Basic is a third generation event-driven programming language. The Microsoft Corporation released Visual Basic in 1987. It was indeed the first visual development tool from Microsoft. Visual Basic was derived from BASIC and enables rapid application development of graphical user interface applications, access to databases using DAO, RDO, or ADO, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects. The language not only allows Visual Basic programmers to create simple GUI applications, but also helps them develop quite complex applications. Visual Basic allows developers to target Windows, Web, and mobile devices.
Programming in Visual Basic is a combination of visually arranging components on a form, specifying attributes and actions of those components. Since the default attributes and actions ought to be defined for the components, it is very simple to write a program without the help of a Visual Basic programmer. Forms can be created using drag and drop techniques. Visual Basic provides many interesting sets of tools to help you in building exciting and entertaining applications. It provides these tools to make your life easier, since the entire coding is already written for you. Moreover, it is a user friendly language which is very effective and efficient. A tool is used to place controls such as text boxes, buttons, etc on the form window. Default values will be provided when a control is created, but it can be changed by the Visual Basic programmer.

Java is an object-oriented programming language developed by Sun Microsystems in 1990s. Since then, Java has gained enormous popularity as a computer language. Java was chosen as the programming language for network computers. It is a universal front end for enterprise database. Sun Microsystems states that, â€œJava is a simple, object-oriented, distributed, secure, architecture, robust, multi threaded and dynamic language. The program can be written once, and run anywhereâ€. One of the most significant advantages of Java is that, it has the ability to move easily from one computer to another. It also has the ability to run the same program on many different operating systems. With such exemplary benefits, Java is a hot favorite among techies and software professionals.
Java has significant advantages compared to other languages. Java language is easy to use and therefore easy to write, compile, debug. Moreover, it is easier to learn when compared to other programming languages. Since Java is object-oriented, it allows you to create modular programs and reusable codes. Platform-independent, Java is a robust language. The language lays more importance on early checking for errors, since Java compilers can detect many problems during the time of execution of an application. Java is multithreaded, since it has the capability for a program to perform several tasks simultaneously within the same program. Java Development has gained a significant position in the industry with programmers and developers finding it easier and more effective than many other languages.
