Java is an object-oriented applications programming language developed by Sun Microsystems in the early 1990s. The language itself derives much of its syntax from C and C++ but has a simpler object model and fewer low-level facilities. One characteristic of Java is platform independence, which means that programs written in the Java language must run similarly on any supported hardware/operating-system platform. One should be able to write a program once, compile it once, and run it anywhere.
Sun Microsystems provides a GNU General Public License implementation of a Java compiler and Java virtual machine and most of the class library that is required to run Java programs, in compliance with the specifications of the Java Community Process.
