This platform had taken the programming language a new dimension.so let's go down the history lane.
Java was introduced to the world in late 1995. In 1991, a group of Sun engineers named the "Green Team" believed that the next ball in computing was the union of digital devices and computers. This team was led by "James Gosling", notably called the founder of Java.
The Green Team's agenda was to revolutionize the television world which was an untoward concept , much too advance back then. But it was spot on for the Internet, which was just starting to soar. In 1995, the team announced that the Netscape Navigator Internet browser would incorporate Java technology.
Today, Java not only permeates the Internet, but also is the invisible force behind many of the applications and devices that power our day-to-day lives. From mobile phones to hand held devices, games and navigation systems to e-business solutions, Java is omnipresent!
Java programming language is an object oriented language that has syntax quite similar to C++. the agenda was to eliminate all the complex features yet make it the most powerful language. And yeah, it was done!! This is a language in which Java applications are written. The programs are built from classes. From a class, we can create multiple objects also called an instance of the class. Imagine java to be a manufacturing unit with crazy gadgets being built. When a java program is compiled, it is converted into byte codes that are portable machine language of the architecture called the Java Virtual Machine. We will see this in depth later.
Let's get started! Happy reading you guys!
