History of Java

Java is general purpose, object oriented programming language developed by sun micro systems of USA in 1991. Originally called 'OAK' by James Gosling, one of the inventors of the languages.  The Java team is also called as green Team.

                                      James Gosling and his team members where consuming a lot of coffee while developing this language. Good quality of coffee was supplied from a place called " Java Island". Hence they fixed the name of the language as java and the symbol for java is cup and saucer.
