LiveConnect: JavaScript and Java

19.8 Summary

LiveConnect allows JavaScript and Java to cooperate through two fairly separate and symmetrical systems. In JavaScript, the JavaPackage, JavaClass, JavaObject, JavaArray, and JavaMethod objects all allow JavaScript to read and write Java properties and arrays and to invoke Java methods. In Java, the netscape.javascript.JSObject class allows Java programs to read and write properties of JavaScript objects and elements of JavaScript arrays, to invoke JavaScript functions, and evaluate strings of JavaScript code. The following two subsections summarize these two halves of LiveConnect.
