Hypermedia opened up many options for new kinds of sensory input a user might receive, including access to graphics, text, or even videos. World Wide Web had transformed the online world and brought interactivity—real-time, dynamic, and visual interaction between the user and application.

A lot of server side and browser side scripting languages and Java has brought interactivity to the Web. Nowadays, we can encounter animations and interactive applications, customized media formats and information protocols displayed in any browser. There is improved communication, information, and interaction on the Web by enabling users to distribute executable content—rather than just HTML pages and multimedia files—to users. This ability to distribute executable content is the power of today's web.

Java for Immediate feedback and user input

The JAVA gets immediate feedback and accepts user input continuously through a mouse or keyboard entries. Users engaged in continuous, real-time, and complex interaction

In today's scenario, The Web is supporting a variety of communication. Programmers can create some interactivity through gateway programs that use files of hypertext on the Web as interfaces. When you use a Web page with such a gateway program, you can access databases or receive a customized response based on a query.

This communication on the web has engaged the users in continuous, real-time, and complex interaction.

Java providing a wide variety of interactive behavior

Java is very powerful because of its, wider variety of interactive behavior, limited only by the imagination and skill of the Java programmer. Java thus transforms a hypertext page into a stage, complete with the chance for actors and players to appear and things to happen. And, instead of the user being in the audience, a user of a Java-enabled Web browser is actively a part of the activity on this stage, changing what transpires and reacting to it, and shaping the information content delivered on the Web.

Content distributed through networks
Java is used to create executable content distributed through networks.

Integrating with VRML

The JAVA integrates with the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML), now, developers can create virtual worlds that are not only three-dimensional but also animated and interactive.

Not only this, Dimension X has developed a Java-VRML mix called Iced Java which has the potential to take Web communication and interaction to an even richer level.

Can run on any machine

Develop consumer electronic products that could be simple and bug-free, so it was created platform-independent that is why it can run on any Central Processing Unit (CPU).
