Joe is a current SunSoft tool for creating Java applications that can receive and send information across the Internet, which greatly expands the power of these applications for business computing. Bringing together the two Web technologies, Java and CORBA objects, this text aims to help Java developers to discover how to use Joe to design and build powerful Web applications that can run on company-wide Intranets and across the Internet, using distributed objects. It provides step-by-step instructions showing how to build three sample applications of increasing complexity. All code is included in the book and can be downloaded from a website; developers can modify this code to build their own custom applications. These examples use NEO, the SunSoft Object Request Broker(ORB), but they can run successfully using any commercial ORB. The book also provides an introduction to NEO and explains the advantages of NEO's features in writing Java applications.
