Creating Java Applications using NetRexx

An IBM Redbooks publication


NetRexx is a new human-oriented language that makes writing and
using Java classes quicker and easier than writing in Java.
NetRexx combines the ease of use and flexibility of Rexx with the
robust structure and portability of Java.

This IBM Redbooks publication covers all aspects of NetRexx, from simple scripting
programs to applications and applets using such advanced features
as graphical user interfaces with animation, access to relational
databases, communication over TCP/IP sockets, client/server
programming using remote method invocation (RMI), Common
Gateway Interface (CGI) programming, and JavaBeans.
The sample programs are freely available on the Internet.

This book applies to NetRexx Version 1.0 and 1.1, and the
Java Development Kit (JDK) Version 1.1.1. The sample programs
were tested on Windows 95, Windows NT, and OS/2 Warp; they
should also run on other platforms that support JDK 1.1.
