Key differences between Java and Erlang

SyntaxJava uses a C-style syntax with curly braces and semicolons.Erlang uses a Prolog-like syntax with pattern matching and function clauses.
ParadigmJava is primarily an object-oriented programming language with support for imperative and procedural programming.Erlang is a functional programming language with support for concurrent and distributed programming.
TypingJava is statically typed, meaning that variable types are checked at compile-time.Erlang is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are checked at runtime.
PerformanceJava is known for its high performance and efficiency.Erlang is designed for high concurrency and fault-tolerance rather than raw performance.
Libraries and frameworksJava has a vast ecosystem of libraries and frameworks for various purposes.Erlang has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to Java, but it has strong support for building distributed and fault-tolerant systems.
Community and supportJava has a large and active community with extensive documentation and support.Erlang has a smaller but dedicated community with good support from the language creators and community members.
Learning curveJava has a moderate learning curve, especially for beginners.Erlang has a steeper learning curve due to its unique syntax and functional programming concepts.
