Link your own project to the Internet
E-mail, e-Commerce, and recently even e-Living, you mention it and it gets tied to the Internet. Lots of information is available on how to do that, as well as on the use of ever smaller webservers that come into play.According to Scott McNealy, top executive of Java inventors Sun Microsystems, a car will soon be redefined as a virtual Java machine on wheels. According to Scott, it will not be long before household electronics not linked to the Internet will belong in a museum. After e-commerce and e-business, we now get e-living. The technology used by Sun for this purpose is called Jini, a network technology based on Java.
