Java networking and awt bible

Welcome to the world of Java, the language of choice for anyone who wants to develop creative and effective applications on the Internet and the World Wide Web. Java allows programmers to create applets, programs that may be “embedded” inside Web pages; on the other hand, it is a full-fledged object-oriented language that lets you implement object-oriented applications very effectively. The Java Development Kit (JDK) provides a wealth of APIs to help you develop applications quickly. These APIs support developing networking applications, building platform-independent GUIs, multithreading for efficient use of system resources, implementing applets to launch from Web browsers, handling input and output streams, and many others that will help you build applets as well as stand-alone applications. Until now, information on the details of the APIs and how to use them effectively has been hard to come by. We’ve written the Java™ Networking and AWT API SuperBible to give you a head start in exploring this new
standard in Web and Internet programming.
