12.6. Java Applets

Java is an object-oriented programming language developed by Sun Microsystems (http://www.sun.com). It should be noted that it is not related to JavaScript, which is a scripting language developed by Netscape Navigator to run within an HTML document in a browser. Because Java is a full programming language (like C or C++), it can be used to create whole applications.

Java's primary contribution to the Web, however, has been in the form of Java applets, which are self-contained, mini-executable programs. These programs, named with the .class suffix, can be placed right on the web page, like a graphic.
