Part II: System Configuration > Running Java Applications

Chapter 10. Running Java Applications

Java is Sun Microsystems' popular "write once, read anywhere" software technology, whose applications can run on many different operating systems without the need for porting (modifications may be necessary due to OS differences). Java is unusual specifically because a single compiled Java program can run as is on many different operating systems. It's not the only portable programming language that Mac OS X ships with, though; Perl, for example, is an interpreted language, so a Perl program also can run on many different machines, since it's compiled every time it's run. Apple considers Java support among Mac OS X's core features; Java is one of the four types of Aqua-environment applications (as listed in Section 2.4.2.1). This chapter describes the process of running Java programs on Mac OS X.
