Java’s primary goal was WORA(Write Once Run Anywhere).
So we can run Java program in any of the platform (O S).
Since Java Programs written as a classes and compiled to Byte Code(.class) and Byte code is Machine Independent and hence .class file can be copied to any platform and we can run it over there.
So Java is called platform Independent.
Because of this , Java has become more popular.
