Rethinking Intranet Communication with Java - Tutorial

Pre-requisites General knowledge of Internet/Web communication; no Java programming syntax required.
Scope Discussion of Java's significance, potential, and role in group and intranet applications from a high-level perspective (no hardware, engineering, or software implementation will be discussed; no Java syntax or programming will be taught).
Abstract Java brings a level of interactivity to the Web that has not been seen before. Java makes it possible to have true animation and a richer, more immediated way to get input from and display output to the user. Java also makes it possible to distribute executable content across networks and shifts the focus of activity to client applications. But what does this capability mean for information dissemination and communication within an organization? How can an intranet and the capabilities of Java be used to effectively support communication among users? This workshop explores Java's significance and role in providing an environment for individual and collaborative work within an organization. At the end of this workshop, you will: 1. Know the key capabilities and functions Java brings to intranets for communication, information, and interaction; 2. Understand a scheme for modeling user activity with Java that conceptualizes users, objectives, and shared workspaces; and 3. Have a list of high-level design strategies based on this scheme to consider in developing Java within an organization.
