Java Applets

A few years ago, it seemed that the whole world was going Java crazy. Created by Sun Microsytems, this powerful programming language seemed to offer an end to crossplatform problems. Programs written in Java can run on any operating system: Mac, Unix, Windows, whatever. Java also offered programmers the opportunity to write sophisticated applications that could run in the form of a compact file, called an applet, within any browser. Java applets can provide sophisticated graphics and user interface elements that go well beyond what HTML can do (Figure 13-8). In fact, Java can be used not only for graphics and multimedia, but to build complete applications like word processors, spreadsheets, or mortgage calculators that can live right in a Web page. For loads of sample applets, visit www.javaboutique.com .
