The recent Internet phenomenon has impacted all walks of life. E-Commerce, Networking, and the World-Wide-Web have become household words. Programming, which is the heart of all computing, has not been invulnerable to the Internet boom, and has changed for the better. Java 1 as an entity has led to the coining of the name Applet, and more importantly spearheaded the architecture-independent programming revolution. The whole idea of having a single version of machine code for all computing platforms is extremely important because it saves both time during the development stage, as well as disk space further down the road. This is because binary executable files that are exclusive to individual machine architectures are eliminated, and the end result is a network of computers all utilizing a shared binary. In addition to all the the practical advantages involved with its use, Java is an object-oriented, multi-threaded, and above all, easy to learn programming language. Many routines that are either difficult or laborious to do in other programming languages, have been included in Java libraries. These libraries facilitate file access, networking, multimedia, and most importantly, user-interface development. Finally, Java also permits programming for the World-Wide-Web. This means that programs are no longer need to be limited to local networks, and can be included in web pages so that their functionality can be accessed from a browser2.
