Python vs Java – Which Programming Language is More Productive?

Python and Java are two powerful and popular programming languages. As a beginner it can be difficult for you to decide which programming language you should learn first. As I am a Java programmer so I would suggest to learn Java first. But this doesn’t mean that Java is better than Python. Both the languages have many advantages over each other. Like Java is faster than python while we have to write less code in Python than Java. Below I have shared an infographic about Python vs Java that shows difference between Python and Java.

      CPython may be faster than Java but only for single-core operations, because CPython was built mainly for single-core machines. If multiple cores should be utilized (which is very important in web server applications handling multiple requests simultaneously), then CPython gets really slower than Java by creating new sub-processes comparing to threads in Java. This problem is caused by GIL – Global Interpreter Lock.

      Ironically, Jython – Python implementation running on top of Java VM – doesn’t have this problem 🙂

    I think you missed some points:
    Start Java7, file read you can use try with resource, it will be much simple than early version of Java,
    For Python, you didn't say Python 2.x migrate to Python 3.x issue.
