    True. It was officially launched by Sun in 1995, but it was born earlier. It's quite an old language.

    1995 is pretty much correct:

    May 23, 1995
    Sun formally announces Java and HotJava at SunWorld '95.
    Yes, Java was worked on much earlier, but only after something's official people start to work with it.

    Remember SOAP? That was written in 1998. Yet when was the first specification 1.0 made official? Go figure...

    Fair enough. Born in 1991, launched in 1995. Point remains, it's been around for a long time.
