Differences between Python and Java for Machine Learning

The growing disruptive technologies need one or two programming languages to create products and services for the global market of technology especially for machine learning, Data Science, deep learning, and more. Now, both companies and start-ups are recruiting their employees based on technical background with sufficient knowledge of anyone or two programming languages such as Java, Python, R, C++, etc to perform in coding productively.

Powerful programming skills are necessary to deal with cutting-edge technologies. Moreover, Python and Java are the two programming languages having high demand, and also Aspiring machine learning engineers, machine learning architects, data scientists, and so on are always keen to learn both these languages. This article is going to start the career of a machine learning guide to describe the contrast between Java and Python for a better understanding and opportunities.


Python is an integrated high-level language and one of the most popular programming languages in recent times because of its high performance in coding. For the creation of web applications, it is fully supported on any server, so it is also known as the object-oriented and structured programming language. Python syntax is English-like so the programmers can build robust applications with the help of Python Language. The benefits support the developers to read and understand the code easily without any interruptions. This will help many employees who do have a technical background and are just beginners, but they need to learn Python for improving their professional skills and careers. Python is more flexible to learn in a short period since it is very easy to grasp. When it comes to lines of codes, only fewer codes are necessary to perform, compared with C++ or Java.

 In the case of Python, developers focus more on solving complex problems in real life, so the language is well-liked in the community to its productive world and needs only less syntax of the coding language. The key point of Python for the developers is, before the final execution of the code it directly executes the code line by line and detects potential errors, and certain types of real-time data during the execution are assigned by the interpreted language automatically. Python is a free open source programming language so anyone can download the source code, modify and distribute their version of Python without having any previous knowledge or training. Python has a vast array of machine learning libraries so it will help developers to find multiple functions for different works without depending on any external libraries.



Java has a few implementation dependencies from developers. Moreover, Java is also known as high-level programming,multi-platform, object-oriented programming language, and network-centric. It has a simple and efficient coding language, so it is used for internet-based applications. Like Python, Java is also an extremely portable and interpreted language. In addition, the same application can be run identically on different operating systems and hardware without any obstacles.Java programs are run on a Java virtual machine so the source code is first compiled into a binary bytecode.

Java is simple and powerful, that is why it is easy to learn for beginners and can be written, compiled, debugged, and learned faster, so it is also known as a dynamic programming language. In Java, programmers can create modular programs and codes are reusable.


Differences Between Python and Java

Due to the higher demand for Python in the world of technology, recently there is a bridge between the usage of Java and Python.

  • Java’s production code is more popular whereas Python is mainly known for its experimentation potential.
  • Java has long code lines, but in the case of Python, it needs only fewer lines of code.
  • In Java, there are a large number of frameworks for the developers, but Python consists of only a small number of frameworks.
  • Python’s syntax is English-like so for beginners the syntax is very easy to grasp without any potential error while Java codes cannot be learned fastly because it is much more complicated to understand and chances of committing errors in lines are more.
  • Java has a combination of compiled and interpreted programming languages, but python is only known for interpreted programming languages.
  • In Java, to mention the beginning and end of each function and class it uses second brackets, whereas Python uses indentation to distinguish codes into different blocks.
  • Compared to Java, Python provides more string-related functions to the programmers.

Java is mainly used for desktop GUI applications, especially for web application services, but Python is preferred for scientific and numeric calculations, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, data science, and many more.
