The Javatm Platform reached a new level of maturity with the nearly simultaneous release in February 1997 of version 1.1 of the Java Development Kit (JDK) and version 1.0 of the JavaBeanstm Development Kit (BDK). In addition to being faster and more robust, JDK 1.1 also contained new classes and included several of the new Java Standard Extension APIs whose objects and methods promise to ease the development of Java applets and applications for multimedia, electronic commerce, and enterprise data access. This paper provides an overview of the past, the present, and the future of the Java Platform and describes Sun Microsystems goals for its Java Technology.
