What's your favorite feature of the Java language?

Originally, I was most impressed by the combination of corporate and community support that allowed the language to progress rapidly in terms of development environments, documentation, JVM performance, database connectivity, etc. The ability to use language features like networking and threads w/o having to start from scratch on every platform was also a huge bonus that I still find attractive. More recently, I've become interested in languages like Clojure and Scala that offer language features like functional programming and language abstraction while still retaining the positive benefits of working within the Java ecosystem.


Hello, I'm a software developer working primarily w/ Java and R interested in discussions about the Java ecosystem and computer science in general.
