Linux Guide - J

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
  • Java
    A simple, object-oriented, distributed, interpreted, robust, secure, architecture-neutral, portable, multithreaded, dynamic, buzzword-compliant, general-purpose programming language developed by Sun Microsystems in 1995(?). Java supports programming for the Internet in the form of platform-independent Java "applets"
     
  • JavaBeans
    A component architecture for the Java programming language, developed initially by Sun, but now available from several other vendors. JavaBeans components are called "beans"
     
  • JavaScript
    Netscape's simple, cross-platform, World-Wide Web scripting language, only very vaguely related to Java. JavaScript is intimately tied to the World-Wide Web, and currently runs in only three environments - as a server-side scripting language, as an embedded language in server-parsed HTML, and as an embedded language run in browsers.
     
  • JDK
    Java Development Kit - A free Sun Microsystems product which provides the environment required for programming in Java. The JDK is available for a variety of platforms including Linux
     
  • Job control
    Refers to the ability to selectively stop (suspend) the execution of processes and continue (resume) their execution at a later point. A user typically employs this facility via an interactive interface supplied jointly by the system's terminal driver and bash.
     
  • Joliet
    A Microsoft extension to the ISO 9660 filesystem that allows Unicode characters to be used in filenames. This is a benefit when handling internationalization. Like the Rock Ridge extensions, Joliet also allows long filenames.
     
  • JPEG
    Joint Photographic Experts Group - The original name of the committee that designed the standard image compression algorithm
