What is Puppet?

It’s used by tens of thousands of organizations in over 100 countries, from every corner of the technology industry; finance, manufacturing, media and entertainment, retail, healthcare and beyond. Scale your entire business by automating and managing everything from PCs and servers to VMs and containers in hybrid cloud environments with Puppet Enterprise. Puppet works on almost anything, from physical hardware to virtual machines and containers to cloud services - we'll even help you make sure that code out in GitHub is getting deployed correctly.
What is Java?
Java is a general-purpose, concurrent, class-based, object-oriented programming language specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It lets application developers 'write once, run anywhere' (WORA), meaning that coders can write a single application and compile it on many platforms without rewriting it. These targeted applications include enterprise software systems, applets, browser plugins, J2ME apps, and other applications that have already driven the popularity of Java technology on the server and the embedded platform.
