Chapter 12. Executable Content

Chapter 12. Executable Content

One of the most exciting recent developments in web technologies is the ability to deliver applications directly to the user's browser. These typically small programs, which are known as applets, perform simple tasks on the client computer, from responding to user mouse- or keyboard-actions to spicing up your web page displays with multimedia-enabling software.

You may embed applets into your documents using a special programming language known as JavaScript. Or you can load and execute Java-based, platform-independent applets over the Internet. During execution, these programs may generate dynamic content, interact with the user, validate form data, or even create windows and run entire applications independent of your pages. The possibilities are endless, and they go far beyond the document model that was originally envisioned for HTML.
