An Ode To Java

Today May 23rd marks the 29th birthday of the Java Platform. First debuting in in 1995, the platform has grown to become one of the most used technologies in the world. On this 29th occasion of its birthday, I got an AI chatbot to compose an ode for the Java Platform. So dear Java, here's an ode to you on your birthday from myself and everyone at Payara!

In realms of code, where dreams take flight,
A language born, a beacon bright.
Java, your name, a programmer's creed,
Twenty-nine years, a legacy indeed.

From humble seeds, you rose to fame,
A virtual machine, a noble aim.
Write once, run anywhere, your vow,
A mantra whispered, a promise now.

Your syntax elegant, your types so strong,
A symphony of logic, where bugs don't belong.
From web apps grand to mobile's grace,
Your footprint vast, in every space.

Oh, Java, your threads weave tales untold,
Concurrency's dance, where tasks unfold.
Your libraries, a treasure trove so deep,
Where solutions dwell, secrets to keep.

From enterprise realms to open source,
You bridge the worlds, a guiding force.
Your community, a vibrant throng,
Where knowledge thrives, where passions belong.

So raise a toast, let's celebrate,
The joy you bring, the code we create.
An ode to Java, on this special day,
May your reign endure, forever and a day.
