History of Java

The Java programming language was originally developed by Sun Microsystems, a company initiated by James Gosling and released in 1995 as a core component of Sun Microsystems’ Java platform (Java 1.0 [J2SE]).

The latest version of the Java Standard Edition is Java SE 8. With the advancement and widespread adoption of Java, a variety of configurations have been built to accommodate various types of platforms. For example J2EE for Enterprise Applications, J2ME for Mobile Applications.

The new J2 versions were renamed Java SE, Java EE, and Java ME, respectively. Java guarantees to write once and run anywhere.

History of JAVA

James Gosling launched the Java language project in June 1991 for one of his many set-top box projects. Behind an Oak tree outside the Gosling office, the language originally named “Oak” was also called “Green” and was later renamed from the list of random words to Java.

Sun released the first Java 1.0 public implementation in 1995, which promised ” write once, run anywhere” (WORA) to provide free runtime on popular platforms.
According to the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL), Sun released a number of Java free and open source software on November 13, 2006.

On May 8, 2007, Sun completed the process. In addition to a small portion of Sun’s copyright-free code, all Java core code is free and open source.
