Tips for Hiring Java developers

Java developers are coders who empower companies to leverage the Java programming language, a powerful language with many use cases, including mobile apps, web development, and video games. They can also help businesses leverage Java tools like Hibernate to accelerate the app development lifecycle. 

In today’s technology-driven world, many businesses require Java developers to create efficient and robust Java applications to stay competitive. Accordingly, finding the right Java talent has become increasingly vital for business success.

What Is Java Development?

Java is an object-oriented, high-level programming language first released in 1995. It is reliable, secure, platform-independent, and architecture-neutral, which means it can be used in a wide range of contexts. 

What sets Java apart from other languages is that it’s a two-stage language. In the first stage, Java is compiled and translated into binary code. In the second stage, Java is compiled and translated into the language of the operating system where it will be running. Due to this two-stage approach, Java can be ported between different architectural styles and operating systems.

Java can be found in multiple applications, including Android phone apps, government websites, and big data technology like Apache Storm. 

Why Java?

Both startups and established companies often consider Java because it is easier to write, debug, compile, and learn than many other programming languages. It is also object-oriented, allowing developers to create reusable code and modular programs. Teams using Java tend to have a shorter time to market (TTM) than those using other languages.

Java has many use cases, including:

  • Mobile application development services
  • Desktop graphical user interface (GUI) development 
  • Web applications
  • Gaming applications — Java supports the open-source 3D engine, the jMonkeyEngine
  • Cloud-based applications
  • Big data technologies

Companies can also leverage Java to create powerful and visually stunning apps. For example, an eCommerce business can use Java to create its website database and app. Similarly, a gaming company can use Java to create multiplayer mobile games and web apps.

Benefits of Java Development

Java development provides significant benefits for developers and companies. Due to its flexibility, varied modules, and large user base, developers can easily use Java to create various apps, sites, and other development projects. 

The primary benefits of Java development include the following:

  • Open-source: Java has been open-source since 2011. This means anyone can see the Java Development Kit (JDK)'s source code and create an optimized and customized build.
  • Community-driven: As an open-source language, Java uses the Java Community Process (JCP) to develop and revise Java reference implementations, technology specifications, and test suites introduced in 1998. Developers can join the JCP and contribute to new Java technologies and features.
  • High-performing: Java uses the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), an abstraction layer that lets Java programs be cross-platform. Because JVM is architecture-neutral, it does not severely affect performance. As such, Java apps and systems typically boast near-native performance.
  • Supports functional programming: Java supports functional programming, a programming paradigm where developers create programs by composing and applying functions. Many developers use functional programming to make programs less verbose, faster, and easier to understand. 

What Does a Java Developer Do?

Java developers are specialized computer programmers who use the Java language to create, test, and release applications. They are responsible for coding, testing, and planning Java-based projects, then translating user requirements into project objectives. They closely collaborate with user interface designers and project managers, translating stakeholder and client requirements into code.

General duties for Java developers include:

  • Working in Agile teams to design, develop, or maintain Java-based applications
  • Meeting with stakeholders to discuss business objectives or design new features
  • Writing code, testing applications, and debugging software
  • Defining project objectives by analyzing user requirements
  • Designing user interfaces for Java apps

Required Skills and Qualifications

To create high-quality and engaging apps, Java developers should have a wide range of soft and technical skills. Proficiency in Java is a necessity, as well as familiarity with popular Java modules such as Apache Commons and the Java Messaging Service. These software engineers should also have robust oral and written communication skills for communicating with other developers, stakeholders, and managers, and advanced problem-solving skills.

Other required skills and qualifications include:

  • A bachelor's or master's degree in computer science, information technology, or another related topic
  • Knowledge of Java concurrency patterns
  • Ability to write readable, clean Java code
  • Experience JSP and servlets
  • Knowledge of code versioning tools such as Git
  • Understanding of continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD)
  • Familiarity with adjacent programming languages such as Python, HTML, SQL, CSS, and PHP

Popular Java-Related Languages and Libraries

Java developers should be able to use a wide range of languages and libraries. They must have a thorough understanding of Java and its modules to create streamlined, beautiful, and comprehensive products. Understanding these tools also decreases time-to-market (the amount of time from creating an idea about a product to launching the final service or product to customers), increases productivity, and minimizes errors and bugs, leading to memorable user experiences and higher user satisfaction.

Related Languages

  • Kotlin: A statically typed, cross-platform, general-purpose, high-level programming language. It interoperates fully with Java, meaning Kotlin and Java files can share data and files.
  • Scala: A concise programming language that scales with projects. It was designed to fix criticisms of Java.
  • Apache Groovy: An optionally typed and dynamic language with static compilation and typing capabilities running on the JVM
  • Fantom: A portable language that runs on the JVM. It has a Java-like syntax, closures, actor concurrency, and immutability. Developers typically use Fantom for crypto, enterprise, and DeFi applications.

Related Libraries

  • Apache Commons: A powerful library consisting of 43 modular libraries covering domains such as Math, Caching, Collections, Databases, and Classes.
  • JUnit: A unit testing library. Unit testing involves checking small bits of code to deliver information often and early, reducing waste, and accelerating testing strategies. 
  • Jackson Libraries: A suite of data processing libraries for Java. It offers data annotations and binding.
  • Maven Libraries: Based on the project object model. Developers can use it to build Java desktop and web services.

Popular Java Programming Tools

Java developers use several Java programming tools to create apps, games, and other products. Besides helping developers code faster and more accurately, these tools can help developers implement sleeker user interfaces, create modules faster, and automate the software development process. 

Here are some examples of popular Java programming tools:

  • Vaadin: An open-source web app development platform for Java. It includes a tool suite for implementing modern web GUIs, a Java framework, and web components. 
  • NetBeans: An integrated development environment (IDE) for Java. It empowers developers to create apps from a set of modular software components called modules.
  • Gradle: A build automation tool that controls every step of the development process, from compilation and packaging to testing and publishing. Besides Java, it also supports C++/C and JavaScript.

How Does Java Fit Into Back-end App Development?

While less practical for front-end development teams, developers use Java for back-end development because it is highly scalable, has efficient memory management, and is platform-independent. 

Specifically, they can use lightweight frameworks like Spring Boot and object-oriented programming frameworks like Hibernate to create and manage the back-end in Java. For example, a Java programmer can use Hibernate to apply the Java Persistent API (JPA) annotations on an app’s model classes. Hibernate can use these annotations to perform various operations, such as automatically turning a class into a database entity. It can also handle all low-level relational database operations between the app and the database system, reducing the amount of work for developers.

Java empowers developers to drive competitiveness and innovation. Using Java’s robust cross-platform compatibility and ecosystem, companies can harness Java to create high-performing apps that scale according to the market’s evolving demands. For example, if a new mobile operating system becomes popular, companies can leverage Java’s cross-platform capabilities to seamlessly develop apps for that system.

Employing Java developers ensures utility and productivity, two necessities in today's ever-changing digital landscape.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Java Developer?

Java developers have a high level of skill and a correspondingly large salary. The average annual salary for a mid-level Java developer with four to six years of experience in the U.S. ranges between $74,000 and $120,000. However, wages may be higher with additional compensation like annual bonuses and stock or equity options.

While Java developers in Latin American countries are equally skilled, the lower cost of living means they typically earn 30% to 50% less than their U.S. counterparts, with salaries varying based on location and experience. Revelo provides a cost-effective solution while offering highly qualified, pre-vetted Latin American developers.
