Early in 1990, James Gosling, Mike Sheridan, and Patrick Naughton worked at Sun Microsystems to create Java, an object-oriented programming language. To continue working on this project, James Gosling and his associates established the Green Team team in 1991. The initial plan was to create this programming language for digital appliances like TVs, set-top boxes, remote controls, etc. After some time, this notion was abandoned, and Java was created for internet programming.
History of Java
Original developer and programming name:
James Gosling is credited with creating Java in the beginning. He is sometimes referred to as the Java father. He began working on it in the early 1990s. The first extension was.gt, and he gave it the moniker Greentalk.
Programming language renamed from Greentalk to Oak:
It was changed to Oak when the Green team (James Gosling, Mike Sheridan, and Patrick Naughton) began working on it. Many nations, like the United States of America, France, Germany, Romania, and others, have an oak tree as their national tree because it is seen as a sign of strength.
Again renamed from Oak to Java in 1995:
In 1995, the project’s name was changed from Oak to Java once again since Oak was a trademark of another company.
Original and first version of Java:
Sun Microsystems initial alpha and beta versions of JDK were published in 1995.
