We don't get the chance in this class to learn scripting languages or Java programming, but anyone who can follow a URL, cut and paste, and follow directions can add pre-made goodies to a Web page.
Java, created by Sun Microsystems, is a full-fledged object-oriented programming language. It can be used to create standalone applications and a special type of mini application, called an applet. Applets are downloaded as separate files to your browser alongside an HTML document, and provide an infinite variety of added functionality to the Web site you are visiting. The displayed results of applets can appear to be embedded in an HTML page (e.g., the scrolling banner message that is so common on Java-enhanced sites), but the Java code arrives as a separate file.
