Secure Coding - Java

Lab - 00:30:00

Java is a high-level, general-purpose programming language that, once compiled, can run on any Java Virtual Machine (JVM), regardless of the underlying infrastructure. Except for the Write Once, Run Anywhere (WORA) advantage, Java also provides automatic memory management, thread management, automatic garbage collection, and a powerful cross-platform library. These benefits combined have made Java one of the most preferred programming languages, especially for client-server web applications.
