      Hey Shubham,

      As per my knowledge, the language got the name “Oak” after an oak tree that stood outside Gosling’s office.
      But – In 1995, Oak was renamed as “Java” because it was already a trade name of Oak technologies.

      According to this information, the language did not held the name “Oak” for the long time, so the extension was same as was for “greentalk” i.e “.gt”.

      Thank you 🙂
