Difference between C++ and Java

So in this article, we are gonna look at some of the differences between C++ and Java. Both have some similarities in the programming language they are in right now. We are gonna analyze the differences between these famous languages.

Comparison Index C++ Java
Relationship There is no restriction on different file names and class names as they don't have to be perfectly matched. Java follows this strict pattern of using the same filename as of class name.
Printing statements and input Here we would be using the traditional in for input and cout for output in C++ eg:- in >> a ; count << b ; for input we use (System.in) and for output System.out.println("Hi")
Compiler And Interpreter Only supports the compiler Supports both the compiler and the interpreter
Compatibility It is exceptional with C source code but only in extraordinary conditions No compatible language with the previous version, plus the syntax is already influenced by C and C++.
Run compatibility Write once and compile anywhere Write once and can run anywhere and everywhere
Inheritance Supports multiple inheritances  Supports multiple inheritances via through interface in java but not directly through the class.
Operator Overloading It supports operator overloading Does not support 
Comments Doesn't support documentation comments  Supports single line, multiline and documentation comment
Hardware It is so nearer to hardware which is very interactive with it. Do not interact with it.
Object Oriented C++ is object oriented language. It is object-oriented, but however, everything in the java programming language is an object in java.
