Java is a technology that was developed by Sun Microsystems in December of 1990. The concept of Java involves a number of software and hardware components that are unified to provide a cohesive system for developing and deploying cross-platform applications. Many tech gurus refer to Java as the programming language, calling the execution platform the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and the compiler system the Java Development Kit (JDK). The accepted formal term for Java is "Java technology." Java technology is used in a wide variety of computing platforms--from mobile phones to super computers. Java technology is most commonly associated with the enterprise computing environment and seen less often in desktop applications. Originally, Java technology was called HotJava and later renamed Java after a trademark search.
