apple computer, inc.'s new development platform for building desktop, server, and web applications. Yellow Box is a rich object-oriented environment that is tightly integrated with java and allows you to deploy applications across five platforms: rhapsody, rhapsody for intel, windows 95, windows nt, and mac os. All Yellow Box-based products are an evolution of openstep - an operating system-independent, object-oriented application platform from next.
Integrating the cross-platform robustness of OpenStep with Apple's market-leading digital media and graphics technologies will differentiate the Yellow Box from other development platforms.
"Yellow Box for Windows" is the run-time software (implemented as dynamically linked libraries) that allows yellow box applications to run under windows 95 and windows nt. Applications that use it will feature a full native Windows user interface.
