Java as a Teaching Language

One measure of the success of a programming language is how readily it is embraced by academia. Java has come a long way since its introduction by Sun Microsystems in 1995, and it is now proving itself in the halls of colleges and universities around the world. Java is well on the way to becoming the predominate instructional programming language. The significance of this cannot be overstated--training our future computer scientists, programmers, and IT (information technology) executives in Java will lead to even more acceptance of the language in society at large, putting Java solidly at the forefront of many IT efforts.
