Kotlin is a statistically written object-oriented programming language developed primarily by Jet Brains, targeting JVM (Java Virtual Machine).
Kotlin is a standard IDE plug-in for Eclipse and IntelliJ. Kotlin may also be collected using Maven, Ant, and Gradle or via the command line. Note that $ kotlinc Main. kt will output a Java class file, in this case, MainKt.class (Note Kt added with class name); however, if someone runs a class file with $ java MainKt.
To run the ensuing class file using Java, one should include the Kotlin runt-time jar file to Current classpath.

Java provides two different commands for compiling and executing Java code. The same goes for Kotlin gives entirely different commands .javac to compile java files. Java runs Java files wherever as kotlin to run kotlin files like kotlinc to compile kotlin files.
