Mastering the Internet

Preface

Data communications is now becoming one of the greatest industries in the world. The key to this growth is the use of the Internet. It is not owned by any one organisation or country and is thus not controlled by an political pressures. This provides a global interconnection of networks and independently connected computers, using a standard communications standard known as TCP/IP.

Many people confuse the Internet with the World Wide Web (WWW), but the WWW is just one applications of the Internet. The uses of the Internet includes the transmission of electronic mail, access to the WWW and remote login.

This book covers the main technologies of the Internet, these are:

Local area networks (Chapter 2)
TCP/IP (Chapters 3 and 4).

 

Electronic Mail (Chapter 5).
WWW (Chapter 6).

 

HTTP and Intranets (Chapter 7).
HTML (Chapters 8 and 9).

 

Javascript (Chapter 10).
Java (Chapters 11 and 12).
Windows NT/95 (Chapter 13).

 

The great growth in the computing industry of the next few years will be in the development of Java programs. This book gives a basic introduction to Java programming, as well as an introduction to HTML programming.

Further information on related subjects, such as emerging technologies and the diagrams from the text are available soon.
