Hot Java

Hot java is the web browser from sun micro systems that enables the displays of interactivecontent on the web, using the java language.Hot java is written entirely in java and demonstrates the capabilities of the java programming language.

When the java language first developed and ported to the internet,no browsers were avilable that could run java applets. Although we can view a web page that includes java applets with a regular browser.We will not gain any of java benfits.

Hot java is currently avilable for the SPARC/Solaries platform as awell as windows95 and windowsNT. It's biggest draw is that first web browser to provide supoort for the java language,Thus making the web more dynamic and intractive.
