GLOSSARY

Java

Java is an object-oriented, network-friendly programming language that is very similar to C and C++. Java is designed to be platform-independent and to execute code securely from remote sources. Because it is also designed with built-in support for networks, Java is a popular format for developing complex, distributed systems that run across many different, interconnected computers, especially over the Internet.

Almost all Java-based applications are deployed as servlets in a container on an application server platform, such as IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic, and Oracle AS. F5 optimizes and accelerates these Java-based applications and provides load-balancing and failover for these applications. F5 also offers an Application Ready Network (ARN) for IBM, BEA, and Oracle applications commonly developed using Java.
