As I write this, the only Java tool available for writing and running Java applets is a version of the JDK from IBM called the ADK. 1).

The Java native methods interface is the ability for Java to call system-specific libraries such as DLLs or loadable libraries written in C. 1 will include a better API for making sure native method libraries are compatible with every implementation of the Java runtime across platforms.

Java applications are standalone Java programs that do not require a Web browser to run.
