Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java Receiving Input


Why does this video use "console" and print when the Java I learned elsewhere uses commands like System.out.println etc..?

Dear Adnan,

Console & System are both objects in Java that take Input&Output and there are a few key differences , but the main one is that console should be imported from the java.util.Console package , and System is a global object that always exists and do not to be imported. but the functionality is the same
