What is a Java class library?

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

Java is not dependent on any specific operating system so Java applications cannot depend on the platform dependent native libraries, therefore, instead of those Java provides a set of dynamically loaded libraries that are common to modern operating systems.

These libraries provide –

  • Container classes and Regular Expressions.
  • Interfaces for tasks that depend on the hardware of the OS such as network and file access.
  • In case, the underlying platform does not support certain feature of Java then, these libraries surpass that specific feature if needed.
