Java applets for the masses
A new software tool which enables programming virgins to build and output their own Java apps and applets makes its debut at Internet World tomorrow. And it's cheap - £99. or £40 if you're a student. Called Imitate, the software is designed to bring Java applets to the masses. Its maker claims that a user new to Imitate can build from scratch an animated slogan, which bounces across a computer window. Quizzes and polls are two other obvious applications.
