I guess it could have been predicted, but there are some Integrated
Development Environment (IDE) tools either out there or on their way out
for people who want to be able to use Java (not Javascript). Symantec's
Cafe is one such already out, and there are more. These IDE's don't
require you to fully understand Java in order to be able to create
programs in it, and are written for both programmers and
non-programmers. They should make the process of getting Java programs
deployed a whole lot easier.
