Java vs Laravel: What are the differences?
Developers describe Java as "A concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, language specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible". Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!. On the other hand, Laravel is detailed as "A PHP Framework For Web Artisans". Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Laravel attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching.
Java and Laravel are primarily classified as "Languages" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.
"Great libraries", "Widely used" and "Excellent tooling" are the key factors why developers consider Java; whereas "Clean architecture", "Growing community" and "Composer friendly" are the primary reasons why Laravel is favored.
