Why Java Is Called Both Compiled And Interpreted Language?

A programming language whose programs are converted into an executable form before being executed is the Compiled programming language.  That means Means implementations are typically compilers(translators which generate machine code from source code). Where An Interpreted Language is a programming language is such a language whose program can be executed from source form by an interpreter(step-by-step executors of source code, where no translation takes place).  But Some interpreted languages are first compiled to some form of virtual machine code, which is then either interpreted or compiled at run-time to native code. As for Example Java. And this is the Reason for Java is considered as both!

An Interpreted Language means that the source code written by the user is converted down into machine code (usually binary) to be compiled by a compiler. A compiler takes the binary code and transforms it into object form that Windows, Mac, or Linux can use, depending on the machine that the code was compiled on.

Anyone who has the source code to a program can compile it for their machine because they can convert it to machine code. However, a compiled code can rarely, if ever, be converted back to its source code. It's a one way street.

Firstly java compiled(some would prefer to say "translated") to byte code, which then either compiled, or interpreted depending on mood of JIT. Java is a compiled programming language, but rather than compile straight to executable machine code, it compiles to an intermediate binary form called Java Virtual Machine byte code. So it is Called Both Compiled And Interpreted Language. If you want to get help in java assignments then you can get help at CodeAvail- Online Computer Science Assignment

Yes, a java program is first compiled into bytecode which JRE can understand. ByteCode is then interpreted by the JVM making it as an interpreted language. If you want to learn more about Java then can enroll for Java Training Courses in Bangalore
