In 1991, James Gosling of Sun Microsystems created Java. Sun Microsystems wrote software for many different devices. Eventually, re-compiling or restructuring code to run on various CPU architectures became too time-consuming.
The founding team had a hard time thinking of a good name for their project, and while out for coffee, decided to name the language after their coffee.
Java is a general-purpose programming language that allows developers to run code on any device. It compiles code into Java-specific byte code, then the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) converts that byte code into machine compatible code. Because it compiles code in this way, Java becomes completely cross-platform. This is a major contributing factor to Java’s success.
