History of Java

History of Java is superb. You can think about technology scope and growth.

  • James Gosling initiated the Java language project in June 1991 for use in one of his many set-top box projects.

  • The language, initially called ‘Oak’ after an oak tree that stood outside Gosling's office, also went by the name ‘Green’ and ended up later being renamed as Java, from a list of random words.

  • Java was developed in 1991 as a green project with a green team of sun microsystem, that day java was named as oak.

  • This name was taken from a tree. Oak is a national tree in most of the European countries.

  • Sun released the first public implementation as Java 1.0 in 1995.

  • It promised to Write Once, Run Anywhere (WORA), providing no-cost run-times on popular platforms.

  • On 13 November 2006, Sun released much of Java as free and open-source software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).

  • On 8 May 2007, Sun finished the process, making all of Java's core code free and open-source, aside from a small portion of code to which Sun did not hold the copyright.

  • Java was developed for Television feature, but at that time it seems more advanced technology with industry.

  • Later, Netscape and then oracle has been occupied.

  • In 1995, the hot browser was developed from which you can share images and views on the web. From that time, it became very famous. Sir James Gosling has changed the name as java since they were in the meeting and each one of them was drinking coffee.

  • Since Java is an island where first-time coffee was produced.

  • The Java basic principles for creating Java programming was "Simple, Robust, Portable, Platform-independent, Secured, High Performance, Multithreaded, Architecture Neutral, Object-Oriented, Interpreted, and Dynamic".

Now, you can see where is this technology, we can think everywhere like internet programming, mobile devices, games, e-business solutions, car, tv, washing machine, refrigerator, etc.
