Java

The Java programming language was released in 1995 after it nearly died under the name of Oak. When it was relaunched, it was targeted at running dynamic applications within the still-new "HTML browser" Mozilla: applets. Until that time, the World Wide Web was mostly a static universe. Applets shattered that stillness, and for a time were extremely popular on web sites. Other technologies subsequently trumped Java applets, notably Flash, but by that time the Java programming language established itself, and went on to be successful in a host of other domains, including desktop applications, server applications (servlets, etc.), embedded systems, and mobile platforms.

Today, Java is one of the most dominant programming languages in the world, consistently ranking in the top 5. It has at least three distinct editions (standard, enterprise, and micro), and also is the language of choice for programming in the exploding Android platform. Here at Systematic Computer Science, we have engaged in many projects using the Java Enterprise Edition for building all sorts of server based applications (e.g. web applications, Enterprise JavaBeans, web services).
