Java is a general-purpose, concurrent, class-based, object-oriented computer Programming Language. Java is intended to let application developers “write once, run anywhere” (WORA), which is the one of the major feature of The Java Language. Which means the code will run on one platform does not need to be recompiled to run on another. Java applications are typically compiled to bytecode (class file) that can run on any Java virtual machine (JVM) regardless of computer architecture. It was originally developed by Sir James Gosling at Sun Microsystems (later on merged in Oracle Corporation) in 1995. C++ was initially known as “The Oak” as of the Oak tree outside the Gosling’s Office. Java’s latest stable release was in June, 2013. The major implementations was OpenJDK, many others. The java Language was influenced by Ada 83, C++, C#, Eiffel, Generic Java, Mesa, Modula-3, Oberon, Objective-C, UCSD Pascal, Smalltalk. Also Java is a cross-platform (multi-platform) Programming Language. The file extensions for C Programs are generally .java, .class, .jar.
Java is, as of 2012, one of the most popular programming languages in use, particularly for client-server web applications, with a reported 10 million users.
