An object-oriented programming language from Oracle that is platform independent. Developed by Sun in the early 1990s (Oracle acquired Sun in 2010), and modeled after C++, Java was originally designed for embedded applications in set-top boxes and other consumer electronics. Java ignited a revolution when Sun transitioned it to the Web in 1994. It is used in desktop computers, servers, mobile devices and Blu-ray players with more than three billion installations as of 2019.Applet, App and ServletWhen a Java program is launched from a Web page, the program is called a Java "applet." When run without the Web browser on a user's machine, it is a Java "application." When running in a Web server, it is a Java "servlet."Write Once-Run AnywhereJava embodies the "write once-run anywhere" model. For example, a Java program can be moved from a Unix server to a Windows server with minimal modification most of the time. This is accomplished because Java source code is first compiled into an intermediate "bytecode" language. In order to run the bytecode, it is either compiled into machine code and then run or executed a line at a time via the Java interpreter, a runtime engine known as the "Java Virtual Machine" (JVM). There are JVMs for all major hardware platforms, which is what makes Java cross platform. When users are notified to update Java in their computers, they are updating the runtime engine (see Java Virtual Machine). See Java platform, servlet, JSP, Jini, CaffeineMark and caffeine based.Java vs. JavaScriptAlthough they share a similar-sounding name, Java is not JavaScript (for the difference, see JavaScript).The following Java example of changing Fahrenheit to Celsius is rather wordy compared to the C example in this encyclopedia. Java is designed for GUI-based applications, and several extra lines of code are necessary here to allow input from a terminal. import java.io.*; class Convert { public static void main(String[]args) throws IOException { float fahr; StreamTokenizer in=new StreamTokenizer (new InputStreamReader(System.in)); System.out.print("Enter Fahrenheit "); in.nextToken(); fahr = (float) in.nval; System.out.println ("Celsius is " + (fahr-32)*5/9); } }

Origin of java

  • After Java

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Java, an island on and near which a particular blend of coffee is made. The US use of the term to refer to any coffee originated in San Francisco, an early center of the US coffee trade.

    From Wiktionary

  • Possibly from Sanskrit यव-द्वीप (yava-dvīpa, “island of barley”). Used in reference to coffee grown on Java and nearby islands since at least 1850.
