Gamelan - The Official Java Directory - EarthWeb, Inc.
Gamelan's primary mission is to serve as a central registry and directory of Java resources. Much like Yahoo!, Gamelan collects links to resources stored on other sites across the Web. However, unlike Yahoo!, Gamelan's mission is specific - Gamelan collects and classifies pointers to resources related to Java. This specificity allows more depth: included for each entry are the URL and a brief description, and also information about its author, links to related resources, documentation, etc. The site features a Java terms glossary and reference library, and directories of applets on various topics including Java:Educational:Math, more>> Java Components for Mathematics - Hobart and William Smith Colleges
Configurable mathematical software components written in the Java programming language and meant to be used on instructional Web pages as interactive illustrations, special-purpose calculators, support for exercises, etc. The components in Version 1 are mostly useful for calculus and pre-calculus and for science courses that use some of the same material. They use Java 1.1, and so will not work in some older browsers that support only Java 1.0. The site offers links to source code, documentation, programming information, and sample applets, including a set of configurable applets that can be extensively customized without programming, using only applet params. There are also links for downloading the applets and source code.
