Article on Mozilla at the German Magazine "Java Magazin"

Saturday April 15th, 2000

Claus Augusti writes, "This article by me was published hard-copied and online in April 2000 in the German 'Java Magazin'. There was a special about open-source projects like Mozilla and Apache. As far as I know this is the first full-length article about Mozilla in German speaking languages."

Claus has also expressed interest in doing a German translation of MozillaZine. I know that a number of people have expressed interest in this in the past, but it never materialized. If you are interested in helping maintain a German translation, please contact Claus.

You are replying to this message

For the first time, browser and jvm are delivered separately. This means that you can run applets with the latest JDK available from SUN/IBM/etc. rather than netscapes crappy implementation.

This might finally make using applets worth the trouble since you can now use such things as Swing, java 2d and JDBC in your applets without requiring users to download things.

In addition to that I remember reading something about an API to write browser plugins in Java.

So Java benefits from mozilla since it uses the latest VM and mozilla benefits from Java since you now have an easy way to create platform independent browser plugins.
