In this article, the writer notes that Java currently means several things depending on who is defining the term or identifying the concept of Java. The writer then explains that Java, as it is currently employed, typically implies one of three aspects: 1) the basic Java programming language, 2) the Java Virtual Machine and 3) the Java platform. The writer explains however that Java is a programming language that can allow writer programs to be universally run on any platform or operating system in its own right. The writer notes that many of the Internet's most popular websites rely on Java technology and applications in order to function properly or to offer the visual graphics and animation that they do. The writer concludes that in the future Java should see more widespread use in large companies as a method to monitor transactions and bring various data streams together.
Java Development & History
Java Development & History
From the Paper:"Strangely enough, the Java programming language was not developed to allow applications to operate universally within Internet environments and on web-browsers. Additionally, Java is not an old, relatively speaking since no real programming language is old in sort of classical since, because it was only begun as a side project in 1990 by Sun Microsystems developers. Sun Microsystems formed a team in 1990s comprise of, among others, Naughton, Joy, and Gosling, to formulate a programming language which could write applications that would operate on multiple platforms and systems without requiring the traditional application program interfaces (APIs) that had to be added to any program for each platform it was intended to be run on. These APIs created much more work for the programmers and extended the development times for all programs which resulted in project delays, cost overruns and ongoing application errors after a program's release."
