Who Invented Java?

Well depends on what kind of java you are talking about. My favorite java was not invented but comes from the bean of a plant in Columbia and sure tastes great in the morning! But my cup of coffee seems to have inspired Sun Microsystems to develop a portable programming language based on the object-oriented paradigm. The Javanese people though might beg to differ since they created the Java language first but not for computers but as the national language of the most populous island in the world, Java.
