What is JAVA?
Last Updated 2 years ago

Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. Currently it is owned by The Oracle Corporation, an American multinational computer technology corporation headquartered in Redwood City, California.

There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed. Java allows you to play online games, chat with people around the world, calculate your mortgage interest, and view images in 3D, just to name a few of the many ways it's been used. It's also integral to the intranet applications and other e-business solutions that are the foundation of corporate computing. You can find Java applications in laptops, datacenters, game consoles, supercomputers, cellular telephones, and part of the pages of many websites.

Although stories vary, the term JAVA is suppose to mean Just Another Vague Acronym.
