Welcome to Wikipedia's Java portal. Java refers to a number of computer software products and specifications from Sun Microsystems that together provide a system for developing application software and deploying it in a cross-platform environment. Java is used in a wide variety of computing platforms from embedded devices and mobile phones to enterprise servers and supercomputers. Java is nearly ubiquitous in mobile phones, Web servers and enterprise applications, and while less common on desktop computers, Java applets are often used to provide improved functionality while browsing the World Wide Web. Code is produced through writing in the Java programming language, then executed by a Java Virtual Machine (JVM). In 2006, Sun Microsystems made the bulk of its implementation of Java available under a public license.

WebLogic

Owned by Oracle Corporation, Oracle WebLogic consists of a JavaEE platform product family that includes:

Prior to co-founding WebLogic, Inc., in September 1995, Paul Ambrose and Carl Resnikoff had developed (pre-JDBC) Oracle, Sybase, and Microsoft SQL Server database-drivers for Java under the name dbKona, as well as a "three tier" server to permit applets to connect to these databases.

This WebLogic 1.48 server had the name T3Server (a bastardization of "3-Tier Server"). Concurrently, Pitman and Pasker had worked on network-management tools written in Java. Pasker had written an SNMP stack in Java and a W32 native method for ICMP ping, while Pitman worked on applets to display the management data.

The 1.48 server version had (among other hidden features) the ability to extend it by modifying a dispatcher and adding a handler for different types of messages. Pasker talked Ambrose into sending him the source code for the server, and Pasker extended it so that applets could make SNMP and PING requests on the network, and display the results.

At this point, the founders worked together to pursue what eventually became the "Application Server".

BEA Systems acquired WebLogic, Inc. in 1998, following which it became BEA WebLogic. Oracle acquired BEA in 2008, following which it became Oracle WebLogic.

The way that big software companies used to make software was hiring all the smart people, locking them in a room, and sliding pizza under the door, until they had written whatever needed writing. And then selling tickets to get into the room.
