Sun Microsystems developed Java in the mid-1990s as a high-level, object-oriented programming language based on classes. It is designed to be portable, secure, and reliable. It makes it a popular choice for developing enterprise applications, mobile apps, and large-scale systems. Java programs are compiled into bytecode that can run on any platform with a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) installed.
