Java & Internet (or) Java and www:

Java and Internet: Java is strongly associated with the Internet. Internet users can use Java to create applet programs and run them locally using a "Java-enabled browser" such as HotJava. They can also use a Java-enabled browser to download an applet located on a computer anywhere in the Internet and run it on his local computer. In fact, Java applets have made the Internet a true extension of the storage system of the local computer.

Internet users can also setup their websites containing java applets that could be used by other remote users of Internet. This feature made Java most popular programming language for Internet.

Java and World Wide Web: World Wide Web (WWW) is an open-ended information retrieval system designed to be used in the Internet's distributed environment. This system contains Web pages that provide both information and controls. Web system is open-ended and we can navigate to a new document in any direction. This is made possible with the help of a language called Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). Web pages contain HTML tags that enable us to find, retrieve, manipulate and display documents worldwide.

Java was meant to be used in distributed environments such as Internet. Since, both the Web and Java share the same philosophy, Java could be easily incorporated into the Web system. Before Java, the World Wide Web was limited to the display of still images and texts. However, the incorporation of Java into Web pages has made it capable of supporting animation, graphics, games, and a wide range of special effects.
