This wasn't coincident, Java was made for a purpose. Java was created because back then in 1991 they wanted a language that would allow consumer electronic devices to communicate with each other. So, they wanted a language for set-top boxes, TV, VCR etc.

Initially, C++ was considered for this project but it was system dependent. 

And that's how it all started the team who was given this project was known as the 'Green Team' and the name of the project was 'GreenProject'.
