    It depends on the experience and knowledge of your development team. If they know Java, then use that.
    If they wish to use Kotlin, then fine, but there will be a learning curve to become familiar with that language, if they don't already know it.
    From a technical perspective there is no difference in using either language.
    From the perspective of code examples, and tutorials, there is far more on the web for Java than Kotlin.
