ANS: What is Java

Java is high-level programming language and allows for the creation of sophisticated application. James Gosling of Sun Microsystems is the creator of the Java language. Java was originally called Oak and designed for handheld devices and set-top boxes. Oak was unsuccessful, so in 1995 sun changed the name to Java and modified the language to take advantage of the burgeoning World Wide Web.

Java is available in three flavours:

1. Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE)

2. Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE)

3. Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME)

The J2SE provides the Standard Library. A library is set of java files which provide functionality that we can use in own programs.

The standard Library provided core java functionality which is required to build any java application.

The J2EE download provides the Extended Library along with the Standard Library. This extended library allows users to build applications for the world Wide Web.

The J2ME download Provides a set of JAVA libraries for building applications for mobile devices.
