Also known as Visual J++, this is a Windows-based Java development system that's used to create Java applications that can run on any platform.
Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition: a platform from Sun for building distributed enterprise applications by performing services in the middle tier between the user's machine and the enterprise's databases and legacy systems.
|J2EE: Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Editio|
Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), now called Java Platform, Enterprise Editor(Java EE), is a programming platform—part of the Java Platform—for developing and running distributed multitier architecture Java applications, based largely on modular software components running on an application server. The Java EE platform is defined by a specification. Similar to other Java Community Process specifications, Java EE is also considered informally to be a standard because providers must agree to certain conformance requirements in order to declare their products as Java EE compliant; albeit with no ISO or ECMA standard.
|J2ME: Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition|
Java 2 Platform Micro Edition (J2ME) is a technology that allows developers to use the Java programming language to create applications for mobile wireless devices.
In networking world, Jabber means a faulty device (usually a NIC ) continuously transmits corrupted or meaningless data onto a network. This may cause denial of service of the entire network from transmitting data beacuse other devices will perceive the network as busy. Jabber may also means sending data packet greater than the maximum 1518 bytes as specified in IEEE 802.3. To prevent this, jabber control should be added to the hardware. Jabber is also the name of an open, XML-based protocol for instant messaging and presence. Jabber-based software is deployed on thousands of servers across the Internet.
A connector into which a plug is inserted.
|JACK Audio Connection Kit|
The JACK Audio Connection Kit (JACK) is a soundserver or daemon that provides low latency connections between so-called jackified applications. It is created by Paul Davis and others and licensed under the GPL. JACK is free audio software. It can use ALSA, PortAudio and (still experimental) OSS as its back-end. As of 2003 it runs on GNU / Linux and Mac OS X.
To enter a virtual reality simulation by means of a computer. A term which comes from cyberpunk science fiction and originally referred to plugging in electrodes to interface the brain directly with a virtual reality.
To leave a virtual reality simulation; the opposite of jack in.
The plastic covering that protects a floppy disk.
Joint application development is a RAD (Rapid Application Development) concept, which involves cooperation between the designer of a computer system and the end user to develop a system that exactly meets the user's needs.
A freely-available DSSSL engine developed by James Clark. It is a fast C++ based processor that is available for Win32 and UNIX platforms.
|JADE Programming Language|
JADE is an object-oriented programming language that exhibits a seamlessly integrated object-oriented database management system. It is designed to be an end-to-end development environment, which allows systems to be coded in one language from the database server at one end down to the clients at the other.
The jagged edges that appear in graphics on diagonal or curved lines. The stair-step appearance is the result of trying to build a diagonal or curved line out of little squares. One solution is to create the image in a large format and reduce it to the desired size, so the pixels are smaller in relation to the image. Another solution is anti-aliasing, which means putting pixels along the jagged edge which are of an intermediate color between the background and the image. This makes the line look smoother.
The Jakarta Project creates and maintains open source software for the Java platform. It operates as an umbrella project under the auspices of the Apache Software Foundation, and all of Jakarta products are released under the Apache License.
Jamming refers to the interference with the air radio transmission. It may be used by people who is trying to disturb the receiver from receiving the radio signal at a target frequency.
Joint Academic Network. A university network in the United Kingdom, renamed "Super-JANET" after it upgraded to higher speed links.

Java, in computer programming, is an object-oriented programming language developed by Sun Microsystems. It resembles C++, but was designed to avoid some of C++'s most notorious flaws. The Java language is used extensively on the World Wide Web, particularly because of its cross-platform nature, and its sandbox security concept.
A version of the programming language Java. The files are formated in byte code, and the language runs on most computers. Java is very important for exploring the World Wide Web. See also Java.
