Many Android application developers have a good practical knowledge of the Java language from previous experience. Since its debut in 1995, Java has become a very popular programming language. While some surveys show that Java lost its luster trying to compete with other languages like Objective-C or C#, some of these same surveys rank Java as the number 1 language popularity-wise. Naturally, with mobile devices outselling personal computers and the success of the Android platform (700,000 activations per day in December 2011) Java is becoming more relevant in today’s market than ever before.
