Java or Python which is better for future in India?

All the freshers must agree with our statement that in India one question that mostly arises or comes to the mind of students belonging to the IT or Computer Science stream, which field has more scope after graduation from Python or Java? Or Which of them is better for their future?

To solve this dilemma of freshers in India we have created an article in which we will compare and explain all the aspects related to Java and Python. After reading our article we assure you that all of you will be able to decide by yourself which one is better for you.

Let’s have a look at some important points which will help you to draw the right conclusion:-

Java and Python: Easy to learn

Our today’s generation focuses more on those things which are easier to learn but have high efficiency. If we talk about which language is simple to understand, Java or Python. Our answer will be Python because the syntax of Python is logical and very simple just like the English language. Whereas, Java is a very complex language. The code that we can explain in Python in 1 line, Java uses 9 to 10 lines of syntax to explain the same code. 


Example of Python:- 

class A {

 public static void main(String args[]){

     System.out.println(“Hello World”);




Example of Java:-

Hello World in Python:

print “hello world”;

Java and Python: Which is Popular

If we talk about the coder then according to them, Python is one of those coding languages which rules in their heart. And on the basis of this Python’s popularity is more than Java. We don’t know about your opinion but because of Python’s easy syntax, understanding and high demand, globally many people want to learn Python apart from any other programming language including Java too.

Java and Python: Advantages


  • Java is a portable and object-oriented programming(OOPs) language.
  • It doesn’t use unambiguous pointers and due to this reason, it is secured too.
  • Java supports memory distribution. In java, memory is divided into two parts one is heap & another is stack. 
  • Java also provides a user with an automatic garbage collection.
  • As Java uses strong memory management it is robust in nature.
  • Java supports multithreading because it can execute many functions at the same time. 
  • Applications:- We use java for Desktop GUI Applications, Gaming Applications, Web-Based Applications, Big Data Technologies, Mobile App Development, Cloud-Based Applications, IoT Applications and Distributed Applications.


  • Python is a versatile & very easy programming language just like English. It is simple to learn, read and write.
  • Python has the capability to support large libraries and memory management.
  • Python is considered one of the most preferable languages because it can eliminate any kind of damage initiated by software bugs.
  • Python is highly suitable & compatible with all platforms (Windows, Linux, etc.).
  • Python is interactive, portable and provides a user-friendly data structure.
  • Python is a dynamic programming language that delivers more functions with minimum code & also supports IoT.
  • Applications:- Python is used for  Web Development, Audio And Video Applications, Game Development, Data Science And Data Visualization, Machine Learning And Artificial Intelligence, Web Scraping Applications, Desktop GUI and Business Applications.

Java and Python: Disadvantages


  • The performance & execution of Java is slower than other OOPs languages (C, C++, python).
  • Java can decrease the importance of programming language because of its complex & verbose codes.
  • Java requires enormous memory consumption.
  • Due to high-level performance and huge memory consumption, Java is, a little bit costly.
  • Look & feel of java is not very attractive 
  • Java does not provide any facility for backup


  • Python does not provide a standardized design pattern 
  • Python is not applicable or useful for games. 
  • Python shows errors only at Runtime 
  • Python is one of those programming languages which require more testing 
  • Python requires a huge memory space.
  • Python is a comparatively weak programming language for Mobile Development 

Java and Python: Future Scope

According to a survey it has been seen that the scope in Python is huge as compared to Java, because of the consistently increasing popularity of Python. The scope of python is more because mostly freshers and beginners found Python very simple to understand. Although both are general-purpose object-oriented programming languages, Python provides a better data structure than Java.  Python is less time-consuming than Java. Python contains a huge library & for ML &  AI Python is the most preferred programming language.  Most important point is that the salary provided to a Python employee is more than that of Java in India. But the second most popular language after python is none other than Java.


We hope that you must have already read all the differences which are mentioned above. So, here we are going to summarize all the aspects between Python and Java for your better understanding. For beginners Python is an ideal choice because as we have mentioned it is a very easy programming language. Whereas Java is a complex and general-purpose programming language which is designed for a specific goal. For those freshers who love smart and simple coding, Python is the best option for them. See, both the languages are very important in their own place, it just depends on what is the application that has to be developed. If we talk about their future scope then obviously Python has more scope than Java because of its increasing popularity day by day. But the next language other than python which has more scope in India is Java. So in the end we conclude by saying that it all depends on the freshers which field they found suitable, whether they want to go with the easy or with the complex coding language. Because both programming languages have a huge scope and salary.
