Test Driving Java

Want to see for yourself what all the excitement about Sun Microsystems Inc.'s new Java language is about? If you have access to the World Wide Web, take Java for a spin by downloading Netscape Communications Corp.'s Navigator 2.0 beta test edition from http://home.netscape.com. Versions are available for all flavors of Windows, Mac, and Unix. Once the browser is installed, click on the Java hot link to get access to such interactive test "applets" as a tic-tac-toe game (you can beat the computer) and a paint program.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
