Oracle Java


Java is a programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and produces software for multiple platforms.

Sun Microsystems was founded by Vinod Khosla, Andy Bechtolsheim, and Scott McNealy, all University of Stanford graduate students, on February 24, 1982.

William Nelson “Bill” Joy, of University of California, Berkeley, a primary developer of the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD), joined soon after and is counted as one of the original founders.

James Gosling, Mike Sheridan, and Patrick Naughton initiated the Java language project at Sun Microsystems in June 1991.

Sun Microsystems was acquired by Oracle on January 27, 2010.
