In VisualAge for Java, a term that refers to both Java applets and applications.
The Windows OS term for an application (see definition above).
Application. All of the files that go together to make something happen. Word is a collection of files that work together to help in the production of a formatted text document. Most of a program's files reside in that program's own folder. Some, however, reside in the Windows System folder, and sometimes also, as in the case of Microsoft programs, in the Microsoft Shared folder. This is purportedly so that several programs may refer to or use these files, thus cutting out duplication. In fact, though, this may well be intended as a means of making it exceedingly difficult for one user to copy all of the files belonging to a particular program and pass them to another user. An unfortunate side effect of this arrangement is that important files are occasionally overwritten by older files with the same name. This can happen when an older program is installed. For this reason it is wise to back up Windows before installing unknown programs. ALPHABET
