LiveConnect: Netscape's Bridge to Java

Netscape provides four top-level objects for accessing Java from JavaScript. They are the Packages, java, netscape, and sun objects. These objects mirror the Java language's Packages, java, netscape, and sun classes.

Java is an immensely complex language, especially for a developer who doesn't want to learn the whole thing. But one thing I like about Java is its support for arbitrary-precision numbers, numbers of any length of digits you want. Java calls them BigDecimal() objects.
