The second edition of Exploring Java, introduces the basics of Java, the object-oriented programming language for networked applications from Sun Microsystems. This book covers the essentials of hot topics like Beans and RMI and shows you how to get up speed writing Java applets and other applications, including networking programs, content and protocol handlers, and security managers.Even before the first release of Java, companies from Oracle to Netscape and Microsoft licensed Java to integrate with their Internet products. What makes this new language so important? It's truly portable. The same code runs on any machine that provides a Java interpreter, whether Windows 95, Windows NT, the Macintosh, or any flavor of UNIX. And, potentially, Java is designed to be as fast as programs written in C and C++.The ability to create animated World Wide Web pages has also sparked the rush to Java. But, the story does not end with the Web. Sophisticated large applications, such as spreadsheets or word processors, can also be written with Java. An early example is Sun's self-extensible Web browser, HotJava.With a practical, hands-on approach characteristic of O'Reilly's Nutshell Handbooks®, Exploring Java shows you how to write dynamic Web pages. But that's only the beginning. This book also shows you how to write content and protocol handlers, networking programs, and other stand-alone applications.Part of O'Reilly's definitive set of Java documentation, Exploring Java, 2nd Edition covers:

  • History and principles of Java
