Java for a Great Career

About JAVA

Java is an object-oriented computer programming language released by Sun Microsystems IN 1995. Mobile phones to scientific supercomputers, most of the devices employ the usage of Java applications. Java programming derives most of its syntax from C and C++. It is one of the fastest, simplest and reliable platforms as it is one of the most widely used programming languages due to its simplified coding and dynamic functioning.

Variety of certification courses are available for various IT professionals who aspire to gain expertise in Java development and programming. Java programming has 50 JVM languages. A complete java training program incorporates practical knowledge and hands-on experience of object-oriented concepts. Apart from this, there are many other topics covered in the course. The course would ask for some prerequisites in the trainee i.e. for instance, as a learner one is expected to have worked on a programming language (C/C++); basic concepts of HTML, database, and SQL syntax etc. The salary and perks offered to a Java developer is an added advantage which in turn add to brighter career scenarios.

How does Java work?

A Java application is compiled to Java bytecode which is the instruction set for Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

Java compiler does not translate Java codes directly to machine code instead it first translates the Java program to BYTECODE which is essentially an object file for a virtual machine that uses the extension.class This byte-code is created for a virtual platform known as the Java Virtual Machine or JVM.

The bytecode verifier in the JVM then checks the bytecode after which the JVM converts the bytecode to a machine-friendly code. To be more specific it is the Just In Time (JIT) compiler of the JVM which is responsible for this conversion. It also keeps the track of the frequently repeated byte-codes so as not to repeat the compilation of same codes again and again.

This is how Java functions. As the JVM converts the bytecode to a machine specific code, therefore we have different JVMs for different Java platforms because JVMs are not platform independent, the platform independence that Java shows is a layer of abstraction, under which dependence on the platform actually exists.

Some advantages of JAVA:
It is an open source programming language, so does not require heavy license fees each year.
It is Platform independent.
Java API’s can easily be accessed by the Java developers.
Java always allocates the objects on the stack.
Java embraces the concept of exception and specifications.
Incorporated with multi-platform support language as well as web-services support.
Promotes the development of dynamic web applications.
Java programming allows the creation of modular programs and reusable codes.
Enables secure and high-performance software development.

Java programmers are in demand all over the world. Experienced professionals with Java certification earn higher packages. The job roles one can apply for after completing certification course is that of a Web developer, Software Developer, Application Developer and more. The career prospects in Java Programming are very bright and promise a long term career opportunities by helping them to acquire their dream jobs in the respective field.

Four Stages of Business Growth

1st Stage-Initiation:

There can be varied reasons for a business start-up but the main values in running the business are of those who are the founders. We can see that company exhibits the main skills of the founder in its spirits, for example, if the founder is an engineer, he will emphasize in production rather than sales and marketing which should not be neglected. Main efforts are centered on the acceptability of the product in the market. If the owner can provide the demands of business i.e. time, energy, and finances, he/she can move to the second stage. Otherwise, he/she will have to wind up their business as there is limited time for the company to stay at one stage. Here the main focus changes to establish the company and earn profits. With this financial push company will need to formalize the system and start record keeping, an unskilled manager can’t handle this all. After this, there will be demand for change in administration’s style because of increased activity in his business.

2nd Stage-Growth:

The moment a company moves forward to the expansion stage it should be able to earn a decent profit, but that profit will not go to the owner. This is because it will be invested in the business in order to assist in the capital demands of the company. It demands time for coordinating functional managerial activities; it demands complicated organizational structure mainly focusing on functional lines. Now research and development will be established in order to increase product range. At the start, it will be on a smaller scale because of lack of capital. If management continues changing its environment, the company can stay at this stage for some time. In many cases, owners sell their business at this stage for substantial benefits. The increase of new markets and product will demand more finances. This stage faces larger competitors who deal the situation by putting stress on emerging firm; this stress can be in the form of very low prices as well. At this stage over trading is the biggest threat if not handled properly it can lead the business to demise. As the company grows it need to extend geographical trading and distribution, so ‘supervised supervision’ will be required at this stage. If new competitors enter the market and the owner wants to maintain his shares, he will have to put more capital by himself or attract some partners.

3rd Stage-Expansion:

This stage demands proper management reports, budget control, and dispersed authority, along with a formal accounting system. Basic adaptation at this stage will be to systemize administrative roles which are keys to survival through this stage. The expansion stage demands stable long term funds which will be important and if there is not plan for partners then this stage must be considered right now. Although retained earnings are major forms of funds but dividends are the special attraction to the investors; at this stage these are inevitable. Now company’s track record will help in gaining long term loans but the company will have to give security in the form of assets.

4th Stage-Maturity:

At this stage main issues are about expense control, search for growth opportunities and productivity. The direction of authority can be towards functional lines or it is reorganized with production lines. As there is severe price competition, therefore, productions department should be the center of focus and authorities should emphasize on innovative moves towards betterment.

Now basic investments are in sales and marketing struggles and maintenance and plant up gradation. The company grows up to a level that income is sufficient to tackle this but occasionally more long term load prove to be a support. At this level firm may limit its operations or move on, normally acquisition or floatation in order to become a large corporation.

Why One Is The Most Dangerous Number In Business

Dear Friend,

Recently I had a client who came to me in desperate need of more business.

Here’s the story…

He had been in the construction business for only a short time, two years to be exact. And during that time he got off to a flying start.

He was inundated with a constant flow of work from the only client he had. He had a predictable stream of income and never had to worry about being out of work…

That was until his client decided to retire and drive off into the sunset.

In the blink of an eye my client was out of work and his income dried up.

What’s worse is that he had zero knowledge on how to market his business effectively.

That’s when he came to me and asked me to put things right… (which I did of course).

What does this have to do with you?

If you’re a business owner and you’re only relying on one freelance copywriter, then you’re making a massive mistake.

Here’s how it goes.

Any decent freelance copywriter will have more than a few clients on his books and will almost always be busy masterminding their next winner.

You see, creating copy takes an immense amount of time and research. And in order for us copywriters to keep our clients happy and craft copy that generates a bushel of money, we must give all of our attention to one project at a time.

And when the time comes for you to call on your copywriter to whip up a winner (because you’re in need of a fast cash flow surge etc)…

You’ll have to wait!

Meaning that you could be missing out on much needed business.

Listen, the business world is moving at a 100 miles an marawana hour and you need to constantly be moving and keeping up with your competition. Only having one copywriter on your books will severely handicap you.

The time WILL come when you urgently need your copywriter to bash out a winner.

You need to seriously consider having at least two top drawer copywriters on your books that you can call upon whenever you want.

This way you’ll never have to put anything on hold because of someone else’s work schedule and you’ll KNOW that your copywriter is going to get to work on producing a blockbuster piece of copy for you almost immediately.
