JANOS Help System: [Commands] [Topics] [Tech Support] [Printable Manual] [Search]
Programming Overview OVERVIEW 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.
