In the beginning days of the Internet, around 1990, Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer had been the two most well-known internet browsers being used by the general public. In only Ten days, a programmer named Brendan Eich working for Netscape, Inc. managed to develop a computer programming language that could direct the computer on ways to interact with the user after getting user input. They termed this language “Livescript” and incorporated it directly in to Navigator.
Java is a computer programming language designed by James Gosling and put together by Sun Microsystems. This required longer than 10 days in order to develop – this required closer to 4 years. In 1991, a team of Sun Microsystem engineers known as the “Green Team” labored night and day to create Java. It was initially unveiled in 1995, and many new versions were introduced ever since. Today’s Internet is completely saturated with Java-run encoding, so we have Java to be grateful for for most of the apps which make day-to-day living simpler. Java is presently owned by Oracle.
