Java is a general-purpose computer programming language. The history of java starts from Green Team. Java team members (also known as Green Team), initiated a revolutionary task to develop a language for digital devices such as set-top boxes, televisions etc. Java was originally developed by James Gosling, Mike Sheridan, and Patrick Naughton initiated the java language project in June 1991 at Sun Microsystems (which has since been acquired by Oracle Corporation) and released in 1995 as a core component of Sun Microsystems Java platform. The small team of sun engineers called Green Team.
- Firstly, it was called “Greentalk” by James Gosling and file extension was .gt.
- After that, it was called Oak and was developed as a part of the Green project.
In 1995, Oak was renamed as “Java” because it was already a trademark by Oak Technologies. know more….
Red Hat, Inc. is an American multinational software company providing open-source software products to the enterprise community. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the product of a U.S. company called Red Hat, Inc., based in Raleigh, North Carolina near the campus of NC State University. The company was founded in the mid 1990s when Marc Ewing and Bob Young merged two companies. In 1993 Bob Young created a company called ACC Corporation that he says he ran from his wife’s “sewing closet”. The name ACC was intended to represent a catalog business but was also an abbreviation of a small business his wife ran called Antiques and Collectables of Connecticut. Amongst the items sold through the ACC catalog business were Linux CDs and related open source software. Around the same time Marc Ewing had created his own Linux distribution which he named Red Hat Linux (after his propensity to wear a red hat). In 1995, ACC acquired Red Hat and adopted the name Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat went public in 1999 making both owners fabulously wealthy. know more….
