Java: the new language for Internet applications
Java is a new programming language and environment developed by Sun Microsystems. It can be used to write stand-alone applications, and it can be used to create ``applets'': small program fragments that can be run under the control of an Internet World Wide Web browser. The Java language is object-oriented and its compiler is designed to generate architecture-neutral intermediate code that can be either translated to machine code or interpreted. This talk will include demonstrations and a basic tutorial on the Java language and environment.
Dennis Mancl is a member of the object oriented technology consulting group at Bell Labs (now part of Lucent Technologies, the telecommunications spinoff from AT&T). He received his Ph.D. from University of Illinois for work in programming languages for parallel computers. He has been working for the last fourteen years in various parts of AT&T, in factory automation, C++, and object oriented technology.
