Anyone with basic programming skills can develop an Application Program to
run on JNIOR. JANOS can in fact run several such applications simultaneously.
A small additional program is sometimes needed to accomplish a particularly
custom requirement. In order to provide this capability JANOS application
programs utilize the Java language.
Java is a high-level language and is typically the first language students
encounter in an introduction to programming course. Java is a general purpose
language that is designed to be for the most part independent of hardware
configuration and operating system version. Application programs need not be
recompiled when platform characteristics change. Programs once written for
JNIOR, run on every Series 4 and later JNIOR with little or no maintenance.
