HotJava definition

World-Wide Web
A modular, extensible World-Wide Web browser from Sun Microsystems that can execute programs written in the Java programming language. These programs, known as "applets", can be included (like images) in HTML pages. Because Java programs are compiled into machine independent bytecodes, applets can run on any platform on which HotJava runs - currently (December 1995) SPARC/Solaris 2 and Intel 80x86/Windows 95, Windows NT.
