Java is a programming language developed by Oracle Corporation. It allows Java applications to run on any platform that supports a Java Virtual Machine. It is popular for web applications that use a client-server relationship. A Java client can be embedded as a “sandbox” in a web page without interacting with the web page’s content. The client downloads from, and connects to, a third-party Java server apart from the server that hosts the web page. For more information about Java, please visit Java.com.
