It's a coffee cup, not a tea cup. "Java" is slang for coffee.

I think, James A. Gosling,the father of the Java programming language thought as follows

The first exports of Indonesian coffee from Java to the Netherlands occurred in 1711.
By drinking lot of coffee man get addicted, same time its benefit also lot( i get this).
Same for java programming language, by this language man get lots of benefits, so he get addicted to use it only.

So this coffee cup symbol/logo use by Sun Microsystem for Java Programming language.

Java is the name of the island in Indonesia. The Java coffee is from the Java island.

According to this article Java got its name from a bunch of marketing guys tossing out a bunch of names and Gosling and the rest of the team ranking them. I've seen that story a few times, and at least one of them was from a source I considered authoritative, though I can't recall if it was Gosling himself or somebody else.

I've heard the story that it came from the name of a coffee shop, too. Tried to find the original reference -- a particular long history document written by someone who was there -- but can't. If I come across it again I'll repost.

During sleepless nights at one's desk punching away at the keyboard and spewing lines of code what better companion than a Hot Cuppa Coffee?

The bigwig's behind Java are not inconsiderate, to say the least....
