History of Java:

Java was created by James Gosling in 1995 while working on a project named Greentalk for the television industry. The project was later renamed to OAK, named after the oak tree outside Gosling’s office. However, this name had to be dropped due to trademark issues. The team then considered several names before finally settling on Java, inspired by a cup of coffee.
