My Java instructor - while a bad teacher - explained to us that Java descends from set top box and military control applications. The latter is not so far from a model railroad. Depending on what is claimed, this may make the invention trivial (like using a screw for what it is designed to do).
I also remember publications by Sun (don't remember the name of the technology) touting some Java feature to contrl independent entities - getting an ambulance to the place of a car crash is an example I remember. I do not know about the date of this one.
