The Stealth Project soon changed to the Green Project, with Mike Sheridan and James Gosling joining the ranks, and the group began developing new technology for programming next-generation smart appliances.
It all began in 1990 when Sun Microsystems engineer Patrick Naughton became more annoyed with the situation of Sun’s C++ and C APIs and was granted the chance to create an alternative language as part of The Stealth Project.
But James Gosling is believed to be the inventor because he did the original design of Java and implemented its original compiler and virtual machine. They all operated for Sun Microsystems, Inc. and developed in 1991.
The language took 18 months to finish and possessed an original name as “Oak” which got renamed to Java in the year 1995, due to copyright matters.
According to James Gosling, “Java was one of the top choices along with Silk”. Maximum of the team members preferred java because the name was unique.
Thank you also for listening.I need to go now.
Thank you so much,that was so fun I learned something new today.
Ok..See you next time.
Java Programming Language was developed by the resolution of 5 great people, James Gosling, Patrick Naughton, Chris Warth, Mike Sheridan and Ed Frank.
The partners gathered to decide on a new name. The suggested words were “dynamic”, “revolutionary”, “Silk”, “jolt”, “DNA” etc.
They wanted something that revealed the reality of the technology: revolutionary, dynamic, lively, cool, unique, and easy to spell and fun to say.
