It's not really a feature, but of all the general purpose programming languages that are reasonably fast, Java might be the simplest. I don't think Java is extremely innovative, as it just takes the "best" concepts from other languages and assimilates them, so I'm not sure I can point to any specific feature and say it's something I like about Java in particular... ...okay, I take that back. If you're doing concurrency with shared locks, there are cool things in java.util.concurrent that make your life easier :)
I've developed software for medicine, finance, and advertising. I've also dabbled in Android and iOS development, but who hasn't? I love economics and baseball, and my political philosophy is "libertarian" or something close to it.
