Abstract

Sun’s Java programming language is a newer language based on C++, but incompatible with it. Like C++, Java is an object-oriented language that provides classes and inheritance. It is a higher-level language than C++, providing object references, arrays, and strings instead of pointers. An automatic garbage collection facility frees the programmer from most memory management worries.
