Timeline: Java in Retrospect

Don't miss our complete historical account of the emergence of Java. From its conception circa 1991 to the present-day integration of Java in new development frameworks, we've documented every tick of Java's rise to greatness along the way.

hen we first set out to document the full history of Java's emergence and development, we knew we'd have an interesting and enjoyable time of it. From its conception in 1991 by the members of a key R&D team at Sun Microsystems called The Green Project to the announcement earlier this year of the SunONE Web services framework, we've given you a complete account of all Java's steps along the way.

We'd like to thank free-lance contributor Michael "Mac" McCarthy, founding publisher of Java World magazine and an encyclopedic reference on Java himself, for taking on the formidable task of developing this timeline for our special report. Due to its scope, we've broken the timeline into six parts.
