he world of Java technology is quickly changing from the world of the desktop computer and back-end servers to that of small consumer electronics and embedded devices. During the next few years small devices that connect to the Internet will far outnumber larger personal computers. Consumer products such as PDAs (personal digital assistants), cellular phones, game consoles, television set-top boxes, and car navigation systems will be the new launching pad for the Web.
