An object-oriented programming language that is platform independent (the same Java program runs on all hardware platforms without modification). Developed by Sun, Java is widely used on the Web for both client and server processing. Modeled after C++, Java added programming enhancements such as "garbage collection," which automatically frees unused memory. It was also designed to run in small amounts of memory. The first Web browsers to run Java were Sun's HotJava and Netscape Navigator 2.0. Java was originally developed in 1991 as a language for embedded applications such as those used in set-top boxes and other consumer-oriented devices. It became the fuel to ignite a revolution in thinking when Sun transitioned it to the Web in 1994. Java is a full-blown programming language like C and C++ and allows for the creation of sophisticated applications. Thus far, Java applications and applets have been mildly successful at the client side, but Java on the server has become very popular. Sun's J2EE enterprise model has become an application server standard Source: http://www.answers.com/topic/java-programming-language

Java (Indonesian, Javanese, and Sundanese: Jawa) is an island of Indonesia and the site of its capital city, Jakarta. Once the centre of powerful Hindu kingdoms and the core of the colonial Dutch East Indies, Java now plays a dominant role in the economic and political life of Indonesia. With a population of 124 million, it is the most populous island in the world; it is also one of the most densely populated regions on Earth. ok??

Java is programming language... Why the name 'Java'? Our college professor once told us that the developers were in a Coffee Shop while discussing or thinking of the name of their new programming language... That's where the name Java came from and probably explains why their logo seems like a coffee cup... How true is this story? That i don't know
