Welcome to the Ranch

It is used a lot, particularly in the “middle layer” of the three tier architecture shown in this tutorial page. You can get an idea which languages are the most popular from the Tiobe index. I suggest you keep practising at learning programming. The logic behind object‑oriented programming is the most important thing for you to learn.

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but...WOW. Those figures seem to suggest that Java has replaced Objective-C for a LOT of people. I wonder if the new v7-v8 stuff has anything to do with it?

Glad to see that reports of its (Java's) demise appear to be premature.

Rather, with the introduction of Swift, the usage of Objective-C for iOS and OS X has plummeted. I don't think that anyone is replacing Objective-C with Java per se, it's just that the downgrading of Objective-C has moved it much lower in the index than Java.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
