The history of Java begins with the Green Team. The Green Team also known as Java Team started this project to develop a language for digital media such as set-top boxes, televisions, etc. However, it was suited for internet programming. Later, Java technology was incorporated by Netscape.

The principles for creating Java programming were "Simple, Robust, Portable, Platform-independent, Secured, High Performance, Multithreaded, Architecture Neutral, Object-Oriented, Interpreted, and Dynamic". Java was developed by James Gosling, who is known as the father of Java, in 1995. James Gosling and his team members started the project in the early '90s.

James Gosling, the inventor of the Java programming language and the virtual machine, skipped many of his math and physics classes in high school. His teachers knew it, but they still gave him A's. That's because Gosling said, they knew why she was missing classes. He worked for the physics department at the University of Calgary, writing software for satellites.
