What is 'Java'

Java is a programming language developed by Sun Microsystems. It is designed to have the ability to run across multiple operating systems and on various manufacturers’ architectures. The phrase “Write Once Run Anywhere” conveys the idea that once compiled, it can run on a variety of platforms and chipsets. Java technology is present in everything from computers and gaming systems to smartphones and televisions.

Explaining 'Java'

A team at Sun Microsystems led by James Gosling developed Java while trying to implement a virtual machine and a language that was simpler and more uniform what was available at the time for embedded devices. After toying with various concepts, Java emerged as a cross-platform and cross-architecture platform. Sun unveiled Java in 1995, with the release of the Netscape browser.

A Java Overview

Java programs consist of instructions and parameters written as byte code. Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is a set of programs that allows the execution of instructions written in Java byte code and is the key component for providing Java its cross-platform functionality. JVM acts as an emulator that allows Java programs to run in sandbox-like isolation from the rest of the operating system to avoid potential conflicts. It also acts as an interpreter or translator that converts byte code into machine code so that any operating system running JVM can run Java programs and applets.
